Help with Designing or Debugging CORBA Applications
The aim of this article was to introduce you to generating CORBA GIOP/IIOP plugins for Ethereal using the new GIOP API recently implemented and also, to show how to generate compilable plugins (using idl2eth) for your project with a minimum amount of work.
We will continue developing the CORBA side of things within the Ethereal Project to improve areas such as operation, name collision and FRAGMENT handling.
Hopefully readers will find these enhancements to a great open-source project as useful as I did.
