Short Description: DOME provides heterogenous distribution across many platforms and networks, including: UNIX, Windows, Windows NT, OS/2, OSF/1 (AXP), OpenVMS, SunOs, Solaris, HP-UX, SGI Unix, Stratus FTX, TCP/IP, NetBIOS, XTI As a fully peer-to-peer product DOME can be used to build systems using any combination of the above.
Long Description: DOME is an ORB toolkit for the production of user-configured ORBs and servers. It is a multi-threaded high performance ORB suitable for use in large scale commercial systems and embedded real-time systems.
DOME is non-intrusive, meaning that the application development is separated from the means of distribution and the problem of distributed object management; this allows the application to be built and tested on a single machine using local resources. Existing software can also be incorporated easily, providing integration for legacy systems.
DOME is constructed as a C++ class library, from which ORBs can be configured and constructed to best suit the runtime environment. This provides great flexibility since new classes can be derived from existing ones and the resulting configurations implemented to user-specific requirements.
Database distribution can be as simple persistent files, RDBMSs, OODMS, or a combination of these.
DOME has a CORBA-conformant interface, and is CORBA 1.0 compliant with the following divergences - additions: - full C++ binding, - integral support for GUI development, - network monitoring & analysis, - transaction management, - location broking, - enhanced security; ommissions: - dynamic invocation, which is seen as detrimental to performance and network security; however, DOME does allow stream operators to perform the same function.
DOME was first released in August 1993; version 2 in May 1994.
