orbd tool is a
server daemon that runs a CORBA Naming Service.
It’s a replacement for the
tnameserv tool, which is still provided as part
of Sun’s JDK (described later).
orbd supports both transient and persistent
CORBA servants running within its Naming Service. For transient
orbd can be used in a similar
tnameserv. The Naming Service is
started and told to listen on a particular port using the
-ORBInitialPort option, and CORBA servants are
registered directly to this Naming Service on the given port. These
servants are transient, in the sense that their references in the
Naming Service last only for the lifetime of the
