CORBA::MICO - Perl bindings for MICO


CORBA::MICO is a Perl interface to the MICO ORB. Its most distinctive feature is that it is completely dynamic. It is not necessary to pregenerate "stubs" or "skeletons" - all necessary information is retrieved at runtime.

Version 0.5.0 of CORBA::MICO is reasonably complete. It allows both clients and servers to be written and supports the complete range of CORBA types with only a few exceptions.

Status update

This mail is being sent to people who have contacted me about
CORBA::MICO over the last 2 years or so.

I just wanted to provide an update on the status of the module -
especially those people I haven't managed to respond to
otherwise. Basically, at this time, CORBA::MICO is orphaned.

I think it's good code. I'd like to see it maintained, but I don't
have time currently to do this. The small time I have to spend on
CORBA/Perl issues, I spend on CORBA::ORBit
(, which is more
closely connected to the rest of the work I do.

Nikolai Logvinov <> has patches to make CORBA::MICO work with
current MICO and perl-5.6.0. I haven't reviewed them, but his
description of them sounded good.

I think it would be great if someone wanted to set up a Sourceforge
project for CORBA::MICO, create a mailing list and move the 
CVS repository there. If someone wanted to do this, I can provide
a tarball of the current CVS repository so that history will
be retained.

Thank you for your excelent work!

I'd like to suggest patch to migrate CORBA::MICO to
perl5.6.0/MICO2.3.5. It based on CPAN version CORBA-MICO-0.5.0.tar.gz.

At least, client/server test works.

I'd like to suggest another patch to CORBA::MICO. Besides the
migration to perl5.6.0/MICO2.3.5 it fixes bug with PortableServer::POA
adapter to SV conversion. Patch is based on CPAN version
