Bioperl Corba Client is a collection of modules which makes Biocorba objects look like Bioperl objects. The most important thing which this does is handle memory. As Corba is agnostic about memory management, these objects handle the memory communication with the server (the biocorba system has its own memory management convention) The second thing is that it provides breathing space between bioperl and biocorba. This way bioperl can evolve separately to biocorba, providing interoperability with stiffling each project. For more details of the biocorba project, the most developed distribution is the bioperl-corba-server. INSTALLATION ------------ You need to have two components installed on your machine for Biocorba to work: orbit (comes installed by default in redhat linux) CORBA::ORBit (available from cpan) Bioperl-corba-client installs as a standard CPAN module Type the following commands: perl Makefile.PL make <become-root> make install If you can't become root go perl Makefile.PL LIB=/somewhere/you/can/write/to RUNNING THE TESTS ------- Because the tests are dependant on a server being available it is necessary that links or copies of the IOR files and biocorba.idl are setup correctly. If you want to run the DB.t test (the only one currently), you will need to start the servers/seqdbsrv.pl in bioperl-corba-server or some other CORBA SeqDB server. You will need an IOR file called seqdbsrv.ior (see t/DB.t for more info) in the client root dir (bioperl-corba-client-0.2 in the dist case).
