When building a CORBA-based application, the link between your IDL files and your own code is bridged by an IDL compiler. In the COPE package, this compiler is called idl2perl.

The compiler will parse the IDL and use it to generate code required to support method invocations between objects. The generated code fits into two general categories: client-side stubs, and server-side skeletons. (Note that the specific files generated will vary according to ORB implementation.)

As a programmer, your job at this point will be to supply the server-side behavior, generally contained within a class named "Class_impl", where "impl" indicates that it is the implementation. Your client objects will compile and link to the stubs, and invoke methods upon remote objects as though they were running within the same process.
