Library Functions[edit]

Excerpt from Homepage [1].

PolyORB aims at providing a uniform solution to build distributed applications; relying either on industrial-strength middleware standards such as CORBA, the Distributed System Annex of Ada 95, distribution programming paradigms such as Web Services, Message Oriented Middleware (MOM), or to implement application-specific middleware.

Sample Code[edit]

If you are interested in some samples look over at the Programming:CORBA wikibook.

Compile and Install PolyORB[edit]

First you should read the INSTALL file which is provided with PolyORB. Most informations needed for compiling PolyORB are contained there.

Linux[edit]

TODO

Windows[edit]

Preconditions[edit]

MinGW[edit]

You will need to download and install a complete set of MinGW tools. Including a current version of the GNAT compiler.

Refer to Installing chapter so see how to install MinGW.

Python[edit]

You need to download and install a version of Python.

XML/Ada[edit]

To use all functionality you should also install XML/Ada

Pitfalls[edit]

Release Version[edit]

There is a bug in the makefiles of the release 1.1r (incorrect use of '/' and '\' in filenames) so this version will not compile with Windows.

FIND.EXE[edit]

The configure script needs the GNU find utility. The problem is that there is a find utility in C:\Windows\System32 as well. You have to make sure that configure will use the right version of FIND.EXE by making a local change to your PATH environment variable. It is not a good idea to make that change in your Windows setup.

Shared Library Support[edit]

Shared library support is much used from the team as static library. So if you compile from cvs you might be better off without --enable-shared.
