From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  Common Object Request Broker Architecture
  CORBA
  
      (CORBA) An Object Management Group
     specification which provides a standard messaging interface
     between distributed objects.
  
     The original CORBA specification (1.1) has been revised
     through version 2 (CORBA 2) with the latest specification
     being version 3 (CORBA 3).  In its most basic form CORBA
     consists of the Interface Definition Language (IDL) and the
     Dynamic Invocation Interface (DII).
  
     The IDL definition is complied into a Stub (client) and
     Skeleton (server) component that communicate through an
     Object Request Broker (ORB).  When an ORB determines that a
     request is to a remote object, it may execute the request by
     communicating with the remote ORB.
  
     The Corba IDL can be mapped to a number of languages including
     C, C++, Java, COBOL, Smalltalk, Ada, Lisp,
     Python, and IDLscript.  CORBA ORBs are widely available
     for a number of platforms.  The OMG standard for inter-ORB
     communication is IIOP, this ensures that all CORBA 2
     compliant ORBS are able to interoperate.
