CORBA scripting with Tcl
Combat is a CORBA Object Request Broker that allows the implementation of CORBA clients and servers in the Tcl programming language.
On the client side, Combat is not only useful to easily test- drive existing CORBA servers, including the ability for rapid prototyping or to interactively interface with servers from a console, but makes Tcl an exciting language for distributed programming. Also, Tk allows to quickly develop attractive user interfaces accessing CORBA services. Server-side scripting using [incr Tcl] classes also offers a wide range of possibilities.
Combat is compatible with the CORBA 3.0 specification including the IIOP protocol, and has been tested to interoperate with a wide range of free software and commercial ORBs, including MICO, TAO and ORBexpress.
Combat is written in pure Tcl, allowing it to run on all platforms supported by Tcl, which is a much wider range than supported by any other ORB.
