Interface Codec

  • All Superinterfaces:
    CodecOperations, IDLEntity, Object, Serializable

    public interface Codec
    extends CodecOperations, Object, IDLEntity
    The formats of IOR components and service context data used by ORB services are often defined as CDR encapsulations encoding instances of IDL defined data types. The Codec provides a mechanism to transfer these components between their IDL data types and their CDR encapsulation representations.

    A Codec is obtained from the CodecFactory. The CodecFactory is obtained through a call to ORB.resolve_initial_references( "CodecFactory" ).
