This document is a high-level overview of how to create a complete CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture) application using IDL (Interface Definiton Language) to define interfaces and the Java IDL compiler to generate stubs and skeletons. For more information on the development process, and a more detailed tutorial on creating a CORBA application using IDL, link to Getting Started with Java IDL: The Hello World Tutorial. You can also create CORBA application by defining the interfaces in the Java programming language. For more information and a tutorial on this development process, link to Java RMI-IIOP documentation.

In this release of Java SE, the server-side implementation generated by the idlj compiler is the Portable Servant Inheritance Model, also known as the POA model. The POA, or Portable Object Adapter, is discussed in more detail in Portable Object Adapter. This document presents a sample application created using the default behavior of the idlj compiler, which uses a POA server-side model.

CORBA supports at least two different server-side mappings for implementing an IDL interface:

 

  • The Inheritance Model

    Using the Inheritance Model, you implement the IDL interface using an implementation class that also extends the compiler-generated skeleton.

    Inheritance models include:

     

    • The OMG-standard, POA. Given an interface My defined in My.idl, the file MyPOA.java is generated by the idlj compiler. You must provide the implementation for My and it must inherit from MyPOA, a stream-based skeleton that extends org.omg.PortableServer.Servant , which serves as the base class for all POA servant implementations.

       

    • ImplBase. Given an interface My defined in My.idl, the file _MyImplBase.java is generated. You must provide the implementation for My and it must inherit from _MyImplBase.

      NOTE: ImplBase is deprecated in favor of the POA model, but is provided to allow compatibility with servers written in J2SE 1.3 and prior. We do not recommend creating new servers using this nonstandard model.

     

  • The Delegation Model

    Using the Delegation Model, you implement the IDL interface using two classes:

     

    • An IDL-generated Tie class that inherits from the compiler-generated skeleton, but delegates all calls to an implementation class.
    • A class that implements the IDL-generated operations interface (such as HelloOperations), which defines the IDL function.

       

    The Delegation model is also known as the Tie model, or the Tie Delegation model. It inherits from either the POA or ImplBase compiler-generated skeleton, so the models will be described as POA/Tie or ImplBase/Tie models in this document.

This tutorial presents the POA Inheritance model for server-side implementation. For tutorials using the other server-side implementations, see the following documents:

     

  • Java IDL: The "Hello World" Example with the POA/Tie Server-Side Model

    The Tie Model is a delegation model. Use the idlj compiler to first generate server-side bindings. Then, run the idlj compiler a second time with the with the -fallTie option to generate Tie model server-side bindings. For the interface Hello, HelloPOATie.java is one of the generated files. The constructor to HelloPOATie takes a delegate or a delegate and a poa. You must provide the implementation for delegate and/or the poa, but the delegate does not have to inherit from any other class, only the interface HelloOperations. For more information, refer to the IDL to Java Language Mapping Specification.

    You might want to use the Tie model instead of the typical Inheritance model if your implementation must inherit from some other implementation. Java allows any number of interface inheritance, but there is only one slot for class inheritance. If you use the inheritance model, that slot is used up . By using the Tie Model, that slot is freed up for your own use. The drawback is that it introduces a level of indirection: one extra method call occurs when invoking a method.

     

  • Java IDL: The "Hello World" Example with the ImplBase Server-Side Model

    The ImplBase server-side model is an Inheritance Model, as is the POA model. Use the idlj compiler with the -oldImplBase flag to generate server-side bindings that are compatible with versions of Java IDL prior to J2SE 1.4. Given an interface Hello defined in Hello.idl, the file _HelloImplBase.java is generated. You must provide the implementation for Hello and it must inherit from _HelloImplBase.

    Note that using the -oldImplBase flag is non-standard: these APIs are being deprecated. You would use this flag ONLY for compatibility with existing servers written in J2SE 1.3 or earlier. In that case, you would need to modify an existing MAKEFILE to add the -oldImplBase flag to the idlj compiler, otherwise POA-based server-side mappings will be generated.

     

This document contains:

  • The example code for this application
  • The IDL for a simple "Hello World" program
  • A server that creates an object and publishes it with the naming service using the default server-side implementation (POA)
  • An application client that knows the object's name, retrieves a reference for it from the naming service, and invokes the object
  • Instructions for compiling and running the example

To create this example, create a directory named hello/ where you develop sample applications and create the files in this directory, or download the example code and unzip it into your sample applications directory.

The first step to creating a CORBA application is to specify all of your objects and their interfaces using the OMG's Interface Definition Language (IDL). IDL has a syntax similar to C++ and can be used to define modules, interfaces, data structures, and more. The IDL can be mapped to a variety of programming languages. The IDL mapping for Java is summarized in IDL to Java Language Mapping Summary.

The following code is written in the OMG IDL, and describes a CORBA object whose sayHello() operation returns a string and whose shutdown() method shuts down the ORB. To learn more about OMG IDL Syntax and Semantics, link to the OMG Web site, and read Chapter 3 of the CORBA Specification.

Hello.idl

 

module HelloApp
{
  interface Hello
  {
  string sayHello();
  oneway void shutdown();
  };
};
NOTE: When writing code in OMG IDL, do not use an interface name as the name of a module. Doing so runs the risk of getting inconsistent results when compiling with tools from different vendors, thereby jeopardizing the code's portability. For example, code containing the same names could be compiled with the IDL to Java compiler from Sun Microsystems and get one result. The same code compiled with another vendor's IDL to Java compiler could produce a different result.

To complete the application, you simply provide the server (HelloServer.java) and client (HelloClient.java) implementations.

The example server consists of two classes, the servant and the server. The servant, HelloImpl, is the implementation of the Hello IDL interface; each Hello instance is implemented by a HelloImpl instance. The servant is a subclass of HelloPOA, which is generated by the idlj compiler from the example IDL. The servant contains one method for each IDL operation, in this example, the sayHello() and shutdown() methods. Servant methods are just like ordinary Java methods; the extra code to deal with the ORB, with marshaling arguments and results, and so on, is provided by the skeleton.

The HelloServer class has the server's main() method, which:

  • Creates and initializes an ORB instance
  • Gets a reference to the root POA and activates the POAManager
  • Creates a servant instance (the implementation of one CORBA Hello object) and tells the ORB about it
  • Gets a CORBA object reference for a naming context in which to register the new CORBA object
  • Gets the root naming context
  • Registers the new object in the naming context under the name "Hello"
  • Waits for invocations of the new object from the client

This example provides an example of a transient object server. For an example of the "Hello World" program with a persistent object server, see Example 2: Hello World with Persistent State. For more discussion of CORBA servers, see Developing Servers.

For more discussion of the code, see the detailed tutorial topic Getting Started with Java IDL: Developing a Hello World Server.

class HelloImpl extends HelloPOA {
  private ORB orb;

  public void setORB(ORB orb_val) {
    orb = orb_val; 
  }
    
  // implement sayHello() method
  public String sayHello() {
    return "/nHello world !!/n";
  }
    
  // implement shutdown() method
  public void shutdown() {
    orb.shutdown(false);
  }
}


public class HelloServer {

  public static void main(String args[]) {
    try{
      // create and initialize the ORB
      ORB orb = ORB.init(args, null);

      // get reference to rootpoa & activate the POAManager
      POA rootpoa = POAHelper.narrow(orb.resolve_initial_references("RootPOA"));
      rootpoa.the_POAManager().activate();

      // create servant and register it with the ORB
      HelloImpl helloImpl = new HelloImpl();
      helloImpl.setORB(orb); 

      // get object reference from the servant
      org.omg.CORBA.Object ref = rootpoa.servant_to_reference(helloImpl);
      Hello href = HelloHelper.narrow(ref);
	  
      // get the root naming context
      // NameService invokes the name service
      org.omg.CORBA.Object objRef =
          orb.resolve_initial_references("NameService");
      // Use NamingContextExt which is part of the Interoperable
      // Naming Service (INS) specification.
      NamingContextExt ncRef = NamingContextExtHelper.narrow(objRef);

      // bind the Object Reference in Naming
      String name = "Hello";
      NameComponent path[] = ncRef.to_name( name );
      ncRef.rebind(path, href);

      System.out.println("HelloServer ready and waiting ...");

      // wait for invocations from clients
      orb.run();
    } 
	
      catch (Exception e) {
        System.err.println("ERROR: " + e);
        e.printStackTrace(System.out);
      }
	  
      System.out.println("HelloServer Exiting ...");
	
  }
}
 

Implementing the Client Application (HelloClient.java)

The example application client that follows:

  • Creates and initializes an ORB
  • Obtains a reference to the root naming context
  • Looks up "Hello" in the naming context and receives a reference to that CORBA object
  • Invokes the object's sayHello() and shutdown() operations and prints the result

public class HelloClient
{
  static Hello helloImpl;

  public static void main(String args[])
    {
      try{
        // create and initialize the ORB
	ORB orb = ORB.init(args, null);

        // get the root naming context
        org.omg.CORBA.Object objRef = 
	    orb.resolve_initial_references("NameService");
        // Use NamingContextExt instead of NamingContext. This is 
        // part of the Interoperable naming Service.  
        NamingContextExt ncRef = NamingContextExtHelper.narrow(objRef);
 
        // resolve the Object Reference in Naming
        String name = "Hello";
        helloImpl = HelloHelper.narrow(ncRef.resolve_str(name));

        System.out.println("Obtained a handle on server object: " + helloImpl);
        System.out.println(helloImpl.sayHello());
        helloImpl.shutdown();

	} catch (Exception e) {
          System.out.println("ERROR : " + e) ;
	  e.printStackTrace(System.out);
	  }
    }

}
 

Building and Running Hello World

Despite its simple design, the Hello World program lets you learn and experiment with all the tasks required to develop almost any CORBA program that uses static invocation. Static invocation, which uses a client stub for the invocation and a server skeleton for the service being invoked, is used when the interface of the object is known at compile time. If the interface is not known at compile time, dynamic invocation must be used.

This example requires a naming service, which is a CORBA service that allows CORBA objects to be named by means of binding a name to an object reference. The name binding may be stored in the naming service, and a client may supply the name to obtain the desired object reference. The two options for Naming Services shipped with this release of Java SE include orbd, a daemon process containing a Bootstrap Service, a Transient Naming Service, a Persistent Naming Service, and a Server Manager, and tnameserv, a transient naming service that is provided for backward compatibility. This example uses orbd.

When running this example, remember that, when using Solaris software, you must become root to start a process on a port under 1024. For this reason, we recommend that you use a port number greater than or equal to 1024. The -ORBInitialPort option is used to override the default port number in this example. The following instructions assume you can use port 1050 for the Java IDL Object Request Broker Daemon, orbd. You can substitute a different port if necessary. When running these examples on a Windows machine, subtitute a backslash (/) in path names.

To run this client-server application on your development machine:

  1. Change to the directory that contains the file Hello.idl.

     

  2. Run the IDL-to-Java compiler, idlj, on the IDL file to create stubs and skeletons. This step assumes that you have included the path to the java/bin directory in your path.
      idlj -fall  Hello.idl
    

    You must use the -fall option with the idlj compiler to generate both client and server-side bindings. This command line will generate the default server-side bindings, which assumes the POA Inheritance server-side model. For more information on the idlj options, link to IDL-to-Java compiler options.

    The idlj compiler generates a number of files. The actual number of files generated depends on the options selected when the IDL file is compiled. The generated files provide standard functionality, so you can ignore them until it is time to deploy and run your program. The files generated by the idlj compiler for Hello.idl, with the -fall command line option, are:

     

    • HelloPOA.java

      This abstract class is the stream-based server skeleton, providing basic CORBA functionality for the server. It extends org.omg.PortableServer.Serva nt , and implements the InvokeHandler interface and the HelloOperations interface. The server class HelloImpl extends HelloPOA.

       

    • _HelloStub.java

      This class is the client stub, providing CORBA functionality for the client. It extends org.omg.CORBA.portable.ObjectImpl and implements the Hello.java interface.

       

    • Hello.java

      This interface contains the Java version of our IDL interface. The Hello.java interface extends org.omg.CORBA.Object, providing standard CORBA object functionality. It also extends the HelloOperations interface and org.omg.CORBA.portable.IDLEntity.

       

    • HelloHelper.java

      This class provides auxiliary functionality, notably the narrow() method required to cast CORBA object references to their proper types.The Helper class is responsible for reading and writing the data type to CORBA streams, and inserting and extracting the data type from Anys. The Holder class delegates to the methods in the Helper class for reading and writing.

       

    • HelloHolder.java

      This final class holds a public instance member of type Hello. Whenever the IDL type is an out or an inout parameter, the Holder class is used. It provides operations for org.omg.CORBA.portable.OutputStream and org.omg.CORBA.portable.InputStream arguments, which CORBA allows, but which do not map easily to Java's semantics. The Holder class delegates to the methods in the Helper class for reading and writing. It implements org.omg.CORBA.portable.Streamable.

       

    • HelloOperations.java

      This interface contains the methods sayHello() and shutdown(). The IDL-to-Java mapping puts all of the operations defined on the IDL interface into this file, which is shared by both the stubs and skeletons.

     

  3. Compile the .java files, including the stubs and skeletons (which are in the directory HelloApp). This step assumes the java/bin directory is included in your path.
       javac *.java HelloApp/*.java
    
  4. Start orbd.

    To start orbd from a UNIX command shell, enter:

     

      orbd -ORBInitialPort 1050&
    

    From an MS-DOS system prompt (Windows), enter:

      start orbd -ORBInitialPort 1050
    

    Note that 1050 is the port on which you want the name server to run. The -ORBInitialPort argument is a required command-line argument. Note that when using Solaris software, you must become root to start a process on a port under 1024. For this reason, we recommend that you use a port number greater than or equal to 1024.

    For an example of how to run this program on two machines, see Running the Hello World Program on 2 machines.

     

  5. Start the Hello server:

    To start the Hello server from a UNIX command shell, enter:

     

      java HelloServer -ORBInitialPort 1050 -ORBInitialHost localhost&
    

    From an MS-DOS system prompt (Windows), enter:

      start java HelloServer -ORBInitialPort 1050 -ORBInitialHost localhost
    

    You will see HelloServer ready and waiting... when the server is started.

    For this example, you can omit -ORBInitialHost localhost since the name server is running on the same host as the Hello server. If the name server is running on a different host, use -ORBInitialHost nameserverhost to specify the host on which the IDL name server is running.

    Specify the name server (orbd) port as done in the previous step, for example, -ORBInitialPort 1050.

     

  6. Run the client application:

     

      java HelloClient -ORBInitialPort 1050 -ORBInitialHost localhost
    

    When the client is running, you will see a response such as the following on your terminal: Obtained a handle on server object: IOR: (binary code) Hello World! HelloServer exiting...

    For this example, you can omit -ORBInitialHost localhost since the name server is running on the same host as the Hello client. If the name server is running on a different host, use -ORBInitialHost nameserverhost to specify the host on which the IDL name server is running.

    Specify the name server (orbd) port as done in the previous step, for example, -ORBInitialPort 1050.

     

     

When you have finished this tutorial, be sure to shut down or kill the name server (orbd). To do this from a DOS prompt, select the window that is running the server and enter Ctrl+C to shut it down. To do this from a Unix shell, find the process, and kill it. The server will continue to wait for invocations until it is explicitly stopped.  

Java IDL: The "Hello World" Example on Two Machines

To enable the Hello World Tutorial to run on two machines, follow the steps as directed in the tutorial, with the following changes. This tutorial was written for the Java (tm) 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2Se(tm)), version 1.4. In this example, the client, stubs, and skeletons are located on the client machine, and the server and name server are located on the server machine. This scenario can be changed to meet your needs and is provided simply as an introduction to one way to distribute an application across two machines.

  1. Create (as shown in the tutorial) and compile the Hello.idl file on the client machine:
       
       idlj -fall Hello.idl
    
  2. Create HelloClient.java on the client machine. Compile the *.java files, including the stubs and skeletons (which are in the directory HelloApp):
       javac *.java HelloApp/*.java
    

     

  3. Create HelloServer.java on the server machine. Compile the .java files:
       javac *.java
    

     

  4. Start the Java Object Request Broker Daemon, orbd, which includes a Naming Service, on the server machine. To do this on Unix:
       orbd -ORBInitialPort 1050 -ORBInitialHost servermachinename&
    

    To do this on Windows:

       start orbd -ORBInitialPort 1050 -ORBInitialHost servermachinename
    

    Both -ORBInitialPort and -ORBInitialHost are required arguments on the orbd command line. This example starts the name server on port 1050, because on Solaris you must become root to start a process on a port under 1024. If you want to use a different nameserverport, replace 1050 with the correct port number throughout this example.

    When using orbd, the ORBD must be run on the same machine as the machine on which the servers will be activated. Another Naming Service, tnameserv, could be used if you prefer to run the Naming Service on a machine other than the machine on which the servers will be activated.

     

  5. On the server machine, start the Hello server, as follows:
       java HelloServer -ORBInitialPort 1050
    

    If you used a different nameserverport, replace 1050 with the correct port number. You do not need to specify the -ORBInitialHost argument because the Hello server will be running on the same host as the name server in this example. If the Name Server were running on a different machine, you would specify which machine using the -ORBInitialHost nameserverhost argument.

     

  6. On the client machine, run the Hello application client. From a DOS prompt or shell, type:

     

       java HelloClient -ORBInitialHost nameserverhost -ORBInitialPort 1050
    

    Note that nameserverhost is the host on which the IDL name server is running. In this case, it is the server machine.  特别注意这儿的nameserverhost应该是服务器的IP地址或者服务器名(费了我半天劲才弄懂这儿,这段话说得太含糊了)

    If you used a different nameserverport, replace 1050 with the correct port number.

     

  7. Kill or stop orbd when finished. The name server will continue to wait for invocations until it is explicitly stopped.
