the above figure, a .Net based application
interacts with the K2 Component Server using
the Janeva Runtime. The Janeva Runtime is
compliant to Microsoft Common Language Specification
(CLS). Using the runtime, the .NET based
applications communicate to the CCM server
over Internet Inter - ORB Protocol (IIOP).
Janeva is capable of converting method calls
to equivalent IIOP calls with proper mapping.
You can use a compiler provided with Borland
Janeva viz. idl2cs. This compiler is used
to generate C# stubs for CORBA IDLs.
the C# stubs are generated, the .Net application
is compiled using the stubs. Once compiled,
the .Net application is ready to make remote
calls onto the K2 infrastructure.
Summary of steps
the steps involved in interoperability of
.Net application and CCM components are
1. Build the CCM components based application.
Deploy the CCM based application into
a K2 CCM container.
2. Compile the OMG IDLs using Borland Janeva
compilers to generate stubs in C#.
Compile the .Net application using the stubs
the above steps are accomplished, the .Net
application can interoperate with the CCM
components using the Borland Janeva runtime.
