R2CORBA provides a complete implementation of the standard OMG Ruby CORBA Language Mapping (RCLM) compliant with the latest version of the CORBA standard.
- an RCLM compliant RIDL code generator backend
- an RCLM compliant API
- multiple ORB implementations through an extension framework
Instead of going for a complete native Ruby mapping implementing a native Ruby ORB, R2CORBA aims at providing CORBA functionality through a Ruby extension using the DII and DSI interfaces of an existing CORBA ORB implementation.
There are currently two flavors of this extension available:
- an MRI Ruby extension written in Ruby and C/C++ using TAO (The ACE ORB).
- a JRuby extension written in Ruby and Java using JacORB.
The RIDL based, native Ruby implementation of an OMG IDL compiler supplements this extension and provides powerful features like direct inclusion of IDL language modules into your Ruby programs without the need of explicit, separate stub generation.
