Portable Common Tool Environment (PCTE)
- IDL Binding (Interface Definition Language)
2nd edition (December 1997)
This Ecma Standard defines the standard binding of the Portable
Common Tool Environment (PCTE), as specified in ECMA-149,
to the CORBA Interface Definition Language (IDL) defined in ISO/IEC 14750 .
A number of features are not completely defined in ECMA-149,
some freedom being allowed to the implementer. Some of these
features are specified as implementation limits. Some constraints
are placed on these implementation limits by this IDL Binding
Standard. These constraints are specified in clause 24,
PCTE is an interface to a set of facilities that forms the basis
for constructing environments supporting systems engineering projects.
These facilities are designed particularly to provide an infrastructure
for programs which may be part of such environments. Such
programs, which are used as aids to systems development, are often
referred to as tools.
