Overview

Abstract: This work is a practical introduction to the use of CORBA and DWARF in two sections for users without any relevant knowledge required. CORBA specifies a platform independent interface which facilitates transparent communication in distributed systems. DWARF is based upon this technology and provides a software framework for the connection of different components at run-time. These capacity highly recommends DWARF for the use as base for systems dealing with augmented reality.

The first section imparts in consecutive steps the most important theoretical foundations of CORBA. Afterwards of these explanations the presented concepts are demonstrated in implementation examples. The code of these examples was intentionally kept simple to make it easier for the reader to unterstand the transformation of an idea into code and thereby increase learning success. Playing around with the sample code was suggested to come to a deeper understanding of important ideas through practical experience.

Whereas the discussion of CORBA in the first section dealed with a technology which is already known for some time the introduction to DWARF in section two treats – based on the knowledge gathered in section one – a technology which in this form emerged not long ago. The interfaces described in the work were specified recently and are not comprehensive documented yet. From this point of view this work contributes a substantial part of technical documentation of the DWARF framework and facilitates the training and deployment of DWARF for future users.
