[erlang-questions] Orber: struct IFR id not found

Hello!

You need to register the module in the IFR (see also
http://www.erlang.org/doc/doc-5.5.2/lib/orber-3.6.3/doc/html/ch_debugging.html#14).

Depending on the name of the IDL-file, there shall be a generated file
named oe_<IDL FILE NAME>.erl. 

I recommend that you use the IC compile flag 'light_ifr' and activate 
Light IFR when starting Orber. On the server side you can change the code
to ({flags, 16#0080} activates light IFR):

run() ->
    corba:orb_init([{flags, 16#0080},
                    {orber_debug_level, 10}]),
    orber:jump_start(4030),
    oe_<IDL FILE NAME>:oe_register(),
    Server = 'Foo':oe_create(),
    corba:add_initial_service("Test", Server).

You also need to register it on the client side.
