omniMapper - Simple proxy for CORBA naming service from omniORB
This manual page documents briefly the omniMapper
is a simple daemon which listens on port 2809 (or any other
port) and redirects IIOP requets for configured object keys to associated
persistent IORs. It can be used to make a naming service (even an old non-INS
aware version of omniNames or other ORB's naming service) appear on port 2809
with the object key NameService
. The same goes for any other service
you may wish to specify, such as an interace repository.
A summary of options is included below. For a complete description, see the HTML
pages included in the omniorb4-doc package.
- -port port
- This allows you to choose a port other than 2809 to listen
- -config config_file
- This specifies a location for the configuration file. The
default name is /etc/omniMapper.cfg.
- omniMapper does not normally print anything; this
option makes it verbose so it prints configuration information and a
record of the redirections it makes to standard output.
The configuration file is very simple. Each line contains a string to be used as
an object key, some white space and an IOR (or any valid URI) that it will
redirect that object key to. Comments should be prefixed with a #
character. For example:
# Example omniMapper.cfg
The programs are documented fully by the HTML documentation in the omniorb4-doc
