The AMI extends the request/response nature of CORBA into messaging services. The messaging services are richer than the oneway or deferred synchronous functionalities in the core CORBA specification, and also pull in elements from the Event and Notification Services.
The AMI works with the notion of implied IDL. The means that although the IDL for an interface, Foo, has a single operation, bar, there are other implied operations, e.g., try_bar, that are used to support asynchronous communications.
