Flexible Translation for Integrating CORBA and OSI
The OSI and the CORBA technologies for systems management can be integrated using gateways and specification translation tools. We show that automatic translation produces results which are sub-optimal with respect to questions of style, performance and even correctness. A translation designer can offer worthwhile improvements by selecting translation options, and by providing complementary information. This approach, that we call flexible translation, is compatible with a generic implementation of gateways.
