IDL : Java Glossary


IDL (Interface Definition Language). Generally refers to the OMG/CORBA IDL. Used to define interfaces to objects. Defines the types of objects according to the operations that may be performed on them and the parameters to those operations. Similar to a C++ header file. In the CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture) context, an IDL compiler generates stubs which can be called by client code and skeletons for implementing server code. IDL compilers exist to map the IDL definitions into various languages: C, C++, Smalltalk, Java.
