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
This allows you to choose a port other than 2809 to listen on.
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
