This Recommendation | International Standard defines how interactions between objects in different ODP systems can be supported using different communication protocols. In particular it:
∙ defines a General Interworking Framework (GIF);
∙ within the GIF, defines a family of functionally-related service primitives;
∙ specifies the mapping og the GIF service primitives and their parameters to the messages and field of particular protocols, including OMG CORBA GIOP.
