CORBA Component Descriptor (CCD),
describes the Component properties such as Transaction
requirements, Security requirements, Persistence
and Database Mappings. It allows the Component
to configured after Development, during the Deployment
phase. CORBA Softpackage Descriptor (CSD), provides
the implementation details of a Component and
external dependencies it may have. It can be used
to describe and provide multiple implementations
using different platforms and programming languages.
These files can be generated automatically using
the - -gen-desc option
of the k2cidl compiler while compiling a .cidl
file (refer to Programming Manual for details
on options of k2cidl compiler). Both CSD and CCD
form part of the Deployable unit for the Component.
