Abstract: A mechanism for passing a request from a calling object in a first address space to a target object in a second address space. First, the request is passed from the calling object to an object request broker (more general term?) to which the calling object is written which normally handles requests to remote objects for the calling object. Responsive to a determination that the target object is foreign to the object request broker, a foreign object request broker to which the target object is written is located. A proxy object is generated according to the protocol of the foreign object request broker and stored in the first address space. A pointer is returned to calling object so that communication from the calling object to the target object may be established through the proxy object.
