Object Request Broker

   Abbreviated ORB. A communications mechanism used in an object-oriented distributed computing environment in which program modules can be written in any programming language and still provide services to other applications.
   An object makes a request and sends it to the ORB. The ORB locates the requested object and establishes communications between client and server. The receiving object then responds to the request and sends a response to the ORB, which, in turn, sends the response to the original requester.
   The physical location of the object that provides the response is unimportant, and to the user, the application appears seamless, even though the various services may be coming from several different parts of the network.
   The ORB standard is defined by the Object ManagementGroup, an industry consortium developing middleware standards based on distributed-object architecture.
