Reading IDL CORBA objects written from java
I really don't know if any has experienced this, or has an answer, some guidance would be good too.
Basically I have a binary file written by java, I can extract some information, however I am stuck after I get to the objects portion. I need to read some objects written through DataOutputStream.write_object, which basically takes an object and it says to quote the Java API site: "Writes the IDL CORBA::Object value to the output stream.". I would think it would be possible to interpret it in C++, but so far searches have come up blank for me, both here and on google. I've searched for CORBA and whatnot, but so far, no succcess.
Incidentally, I am currently opening the file via std::ifstream, and reading 4-8 bytes at a time to find the information, if that has any bearing.
Anyone have any ideas on the best way of approaching this? I've kinda hit a brick wall at the moment and figured there may be someone here who has found a way around, or at least point me in the right direction towards some info, because I am not finding much on it.
