What is omniORB2 ?

omniORB2 is a robust, high-performance CORBA 2 ORB, developed by us. It is one of only three ORBs to be awarded the Open Group's Open Brand for CORBA. This means that omniORB has been tested and certified CORBA 2.1 compliant. You can find out more about the branding program at the Open Group.

We have decided to make omniORB2 freely available. Here's why.

omniORB2 implements the specification 2.3 of the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA). It is our second generation ORB (hence the name 'omniORB two'). The initial goal was to produce a standard conforming ORB that can deliver the performance required by the applications developed in-house. It has been deployed for lab-wide use since Mar 1997. In May 1997, the ORB was released externally as free software under the GNU Public Licences. The latest release - 2.8.0- is the sixth public release of the software.

See a summary of technical details of omniORB2. It supports the C++ language binding; is fully multithreaded; uses IIOP as the native transport; and comes complete with a COS Naming Service.

There are some performance measurements. It's pretty quick, possibly the fastest CORBA 2 compliant ORB around.
