Hi, thanks for your answer
First I'm using OTP R9 with orber 3.3.
In fact, I have an existing application based on CORBA written in a
"common" language (C++ or Java), and I want to rewrite one of my server
in Erlang.
Some applications use "corbaloc" string to contact this server, so we
the servant with an persistent IOR (using the right policy of the POA). With
this activation, we are able to specify the object key ( the key_string in
orber BNF notation).
Reading this document, I can imagine that using
corba:add_initial_service(XXX, Servant).
specify a pseudo object key, but maybe I'm wrong ?
Is there any "poa-like" in orber ?
