When I try to connect dynamically to a CORBA server I get the following error:

'Could not perform CORBA Dispatch, no interface respository found.'

I figure I havent set up the Interface Respository properly...could someone please walk me through this.

Is at least one agent started on your network? Remember that you need the VisiBroker agents in order to work with Corba.

In my client I have 2 procedures attached to buttons: 1 to demonstrate static binding, the other to demonstrate
dynamic binding. The static binding works, the dynamic does not.


procedure TForm1.btDynamicClick(Sender: TObject);
var
   DynamicFactory: TAny;
   DynamicObject: TAny;
begin
  DynamicFactory := Orb.Bind('IDL:DynamicCorba/dynamicCorbaFactory:1.0');
  DynamicObject := DynamicFactory.CreateInstance('DynamicObject');
  Showmessage(DynamicObject.GetDescription);
end;

procedure TForm1.btStaticClick(Sender: TObject);
var
  FInstance: IdynamicCorba;
begin
  FInstance := TdynamicCorbaCorbaFactory.CreateInstance('Random String');
  showmessage(FInstance.GetDescription);
end;

You have to register Corba objects before you can use them.

Run the Object Activation Daemon and Smart Agent.
Use 'irep' to register the inteface repository (.IDL) of the object
and use 'oadutil' to register the object.

Read the Delphi help on these commands. It's too much too explain it all in detail here.

I ran the OAD, and Smart Agent, registered the .idl with 'irep', used 'oadutil' to register the object
(oadutil reg -r IDL:DynamicCorba/dynamicCorbaFactory:1.0 -o TdynamicCorbaFactory -cpp c:delphiprojects/dynamicbinding/DynamicCorba.exe) and still get the same error. If a server is not running, one is created and i get the same error.

This is the .idl generated by Type Library:

module DynamicCorba {
  interface IdynamicCorba {
    wstring GetDescription();
    wstring GetName();
  };

  interface DynamicCorba_Factory {
    ::DynamicCorba::IdynamicCorba    CreateInstance(in string InstanceName);
  };
};

What happens when you use the CorbaBind function instead of Orb.Bind:

  DynamicFactory:= CorbaBind('IDL:DynamicCorba/dynamicCorbaFactory:1.0');
