ORBeline's SMART Agent dynamically tracks the communication taking place between all objects and their clients:
o Smart Binding and Protocol Selection
ORBeline automatically picks the best communication mechanism as soon as you try to access an object. If the object is in your process, it bypasses the ORB and the network altogether. When the object is on a remote node, ORBeline's SMART and efficient on-the-wire protocol is selected. When the object is implemented using another vendor's ORB, that vendor's on-the-wire protocol is used.
o Built-in Fault Tolerance
ORBeline's SMART Agent monitors communication between objects and their clients. In case of a failure, the SMART agent and ORBeline cooperate to reestablish connections between processes or their replicas.
o Dynamic Directory Service
ORBeline's Dynamic Directory Service tracks all registered and active objects, providing a high degree of efficiency, total location transparency and easy administration. There is no need for cumbersome configuration files, and no need for heavyweight object migration and replication mechanisms.
ORBeline runs on all classes of computers ranging from Cray supercomputers, to workstations, to personal computers and embedded systems.
