Abstract

Larch/CORBA: Specifying the Behavior of CORBA-IDL Interfaces
Gowri Sankar Sivaprasad
The Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) provides mechanisms for
developing heterogeneous, interoperable distributed object systems. In CORBA,
the interfaces of objects are specified using the Interface Definition
Language (IDL). However, clients and object implementors also need information
on the behavior of such objects. Larch/CORBA extends IDL to formally specify
the behavior of objects. The language provides mechanisms to specify the
concurrency that is inherent in distributed systems. Our goal is to design a
language that is usable directly by system designers and programmers. A notable
feature of Larch/CORBA is its focus on data rather than on objects in
specifying concurrency. It also provides a general mechanism for specifying
synchronization. This report presents a preliminary design of Larch/CORBA and
a suite of example specifications.END:: ncstrl.iastate//TR95-27
