HORB is a Java ORB (Object Request Broker) that extends Java for distributed object oriented computing. Applications of HORB and HORB itself are network portable and transferable, since HORB provides both portability and interoperability among different kinds of OSs. This paper describes the organization and the main features of HORB. It provides remote object creation/connection, remote method call, object passing, security, and so on. The usage of HORB is easy and simple. Performance evaluation shows that HORB is two or three times faster than javaRMI.
