There is one last method we did not got interested into: get_interface. This method will be discussed in a later chapter on the interface repository but till then, ORBit does not implement it so... Of little use :)

The GNOME & CORBA: The CORBA::Object interface

and ILU:

see runtime/kernel/type.c
                              -is-a /* for CORBA support */

interface repository/type libraries:

Using this mapping, implementations must provide the ability to call Object::get_interface on CORBA object references to COM objects to retrieve an InterfaceDef. When CORBA objects are accessed from COM, implementations may provide the ability to retrieve the ITypeInfo for CORBA object interface using the IProvideClassInfo COM interface.
