NAME

       CosNaming  -  The CosNaming service is a collection of interfaces that together define the
       naming service.

DESCRIPTION

       The naming service provides the principal mechanism for clients to find objects in an  ORB
       based  world.  The naming service provides an initial naming context that functions as the
       root context for all names. Given this context clients can navigate in the name space.

       Types that are declared on the CosNaming level are:

       typedef string Istring;
       struct NameComponent {
             Istring id;
             Istring kind;
       };

       typedef sequence <NameComponent> Name;

       enum BindingType {nobject, ncontext};

       struct Binding {
             Name    binding_name;
             BindingType binding_type;
       };

       typedef sequence <Binding> BindingList;

       To    get    access    to    the    record    definitions    for    the    structs    use:
       -include_lib("orber/COSS/CosNaming.hrl")..

       Names  are  not  an  ORB  object  but  the  can be structured in components as seen by the
       definition above. There are no requirements on names  so  the  service  can  support  many
       different conventions and standards.

       There are two different interfaces supported in the service:

         * NamingContext

         * BindingIterator
