Really, the Persistent Object Service was designed to provide two things:
- A database like access to CORBA objects. This provided CORBA clients with
IDL control interfaces to a CORBA objects underlying storage.
- A means for CORBA objects to uniformly save their state into a database. This
was an internal API for implementation objects (the objects that really have
the state) to save their data into a database.
The Persistent Object Service was not widely received and potentially never
implemented by any vendor. As a specification, it has been retracted. The
Persistant State Service (PSS) superceedes the POS.
