The syntax of this new language looks like the C++ and Java languages but type checking is done at runtime. It reuses some interesting features of the Python and SmallTalk? languages: everything is an object, source code is translated into a pseudo code executed by a Virtual Object Oriented Machine that includes a simple garbage collector. Current CorbaScript? features are:
Basic Scripting Features
interactive or batch shell.
dynamic type checking at runtime.
basic value types: long, double, boolean, char, string, array, dictionnary.
variables and scopes.
control flow management: if-else, while, do-while, for-in.
exception management: throw, try-catch-finally.
modules: reusable scripts.
classes: polymorphism, multiple inheritance.
simple garbage collecting based on reference counting.
CORBA Scripting Features
invocation of any CORBA object through the CORBA DII (the Dynamic Invocation Interface) to implement CORBA client programs or tools.
management of CORBA system exceptions and OMG IDL exceptions.
implementation of any CORBA object through the CORBA DSI (the Dynamic Skeleton Interface) to implement CORBA server programs.
access to any IDL description, calls with any OMG IDL argument types like basic types and also complex types (struct,union,array,sequence), in, out and inout modes supported. Complex OMG IDL types are managed by the CORBA DynAny? API.
type checking done thanks to the CORBA IFR (the Interface Repository).
an IFR cache to improve the performance of type checking.
OMG IDL information displaying to , for instance, view functionalities provided by an OMG IDL interface.
Advanced Scripting Features
access to any dynamic C library.
access to a Java virtual machine (under work).
an extensible runtime: add your own code or new objects in C++.
