Interface Codec

All Superinterfaces:
CodecOperations, IDLEntity, Object, Serializable

public interface Codec
extends CodecOperations, Object, IDLEntity

The formats of IOR components and service context data used by ORB services are often defined as CDR encapsulations encoding instances of IDL defined data types. The Codec provides a mechanism to transfer these components between their IDL data types and their CDR encapsulation representations.

A Codec is obtained from the CodecFactory. The CodecFactory is obtained through a call to ORB.resolve_initial_references( "CodecFactory" ).
