Internet Inter-ORB Protocol(protocol, standard)
(IIOP) A protocol which will be mandatory for all CORBA 2.0 compliant platforms. The initial phase of the project is to build an infrastructure consisting of: an IIOP to HTTP gateway which allows CORBA clients to access WWW resources; an HTTP to IIOP gateway to let WWW clients access CORBA resources; a web server which makes resources available by both IIOP and HTTP; web browsers which can use IIOP as their native protocol.
