Interface Codec

All Superinterfaces:
CodecOperations, IDLEntity, Object, Serializable
Known Implementing Classes:

public interface Codec
extends CodecOperations, IDLEntity, Object

Codec provides means to encode IDL data types into the byte arrays. Some parts of the CORBA message may contain such abstracted (encapsulated) byte arrays, holding arbitrary information. The encoding and decoding operations are defined separately in CodecOperations. The Codec for ENCODING_CDR_ENCAPS v 1.0 - 1.2 is required by OMG. Vendors can implement additional Codec's, driven by alternative algorithms.

The ENCODING_CDR_ENCAPS Codec, returned by the CodecFactory, is a local object. It is not possible to get its stringified reference, to send it over CDR streams or invoke the methods remotely.

Codec is obtained from CodecFactory. CodecFactory is returned by ORB.resolve_initial_references("CodecFactory").
