At the time, Iona said that EJB's server kit, one of the first Java beans implementations to reach the market, would be "easily digestible" into its existing technology, as it was "a pure EJB implementation written from the ground up." Although the server was originally built on top of Sun Microsystems Inc's RMI remote method invocation technology, Iona said it would change that and integrate native support for EJB into Orbix and its so-called "C3 architecture" which is a framework supporting DCOM, Corba and Enterprise Java Beans, integrating the necessary support for transactions, security and network management.
