Pagination or Media Count:
An efficient methodology is presented for integrating legacy applications written in Fortran into a distributed object framework. Issues and strategies regarding the conversion and decomposition of Fortran codes into Common Object Request Broker Architecture COBRA objects are discussed. Fortran codes are modified as little as possible as theyare decomposed into modules and wrapped as objects. A new conversion tool takes the Fortran application as input and generates the CC header file and Interface Definition Language IDL file. In addition, the performance of the client server computing is evaluated.
