public interface ValueBase
extends IDLEntity

ValueBase is the basic interface for all CORBA value data types. A value type is something between CORBA structure and CORBA object. Like CORBA object, it can have methods, supporting some IDL-defined interface. However, like structures, they are local and passed by value, not by IOR reference. Unlike CORBA objects, values are not connected to any ORB by default; they hanlde the implemented functionality locally. The classes, required to implement that functionality, should either be pre-defined or they can be downloaded from the certain URL, defined as CodeBase. The value types can have both public and private members. They support inheritance. Value types can also be abstract. For transferring the value type data via stream, it must implement either CustomValue or StreamableValue.
