This paper proposes a simulation framework that effectively uses the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) technology to provide a flexible, extensible, platform-independent and language-independent simulation environment in distributed environment. In distributed computing, objects may be distributed on different computers through out a network, living within their own address space outside of an application, and yet appear as though they were local to an application. In order to reduce the network program complexity, and to increase the interoperability, communication between objects in a heterogeneous environment, a middleware platform is needed. The CORBA specification is such a middleware platform by the Object Management Group.
