IIOP (Internet Inter-ORB Protocol)
Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.
IIOP is part of the CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture). It provides a way to allow CORBA-based object interaction over TCP/IP protocol networks, including the Internet. IIOP basically works in conjunction with or replaces HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), the primary protocol for Web browser/server interaction.
