Rene Saenz and Brian J. d'Auriol, "A Communication Model for CORBA Systems", Proc. of 16th Annual International Symposium on High Performance Computing Systems & Applications, June 16-19, Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada, 2002, Jalal N. Almhana and Virendrakumar C. Bhavsar (Eds.), pp. 268-274, June 2002
A multi-component communication analysis of the CORBA specification is conducted and an analytic model describing communication costs is proposed. The analysis indicates: a) potential expensive communication when integrating parallel and distributed computing into a CORBA middleware framework, and b) a relationship between communication costs and code layout in CORBA's Interface Definition Language (IDL).
