An object adapter is an instance of the local interface
ObjectAdapter. You create an object adapter by calling one of several operations on a communicator:
ObjectAdapter operations behave as follows:
getNameoperation returns the name of the adapter as passed to one of the communicator operations
getCommunicatoroperation returns the communicator that was used to create the adapter.
Note that there are other operations in the
ObjectAdapter interface; we will explore these throughout the remainder of this discussion.
