What's an event channel?

Bruce Martin

An event channel is an object implemented by the CORBA Event Service. An event channel decouples the communication between suppliers of events and consumers of events. An event channel implements many-to-many anonymous commnication. That is, there can be multiple suppliers and multiple consumers and the identities of the suppliers and the consumers are unknown. The event channel also allows each supplier and each consumer to connect to it independently in either push or pull mode.
