Scope

The CORBA binding is the first candidate for an extension of Conzilla's capabilities to other data formats. With CORBA we would never need to download the component. Instead we would execute the component's methods directly on the component where it is located.

It will highlight the most fundamental problems of designing such an "active" binding, and therefore constitutes an important challenge for Conzilla in the direction of internal company use, as an alternative or complement to a MOF model. As nothing of this is yet implemented, this discussion is still a bit hypothetical, even though a first implementation actually would not be too difficult.
