About Name Directory Service

This article is contributed by Wang HaiLong.


It seems that all the C/S based systems have similar architectures and work according to similar rules:

1. There are usually 3 parts - client, server, name directory service.

2. Server registers itself in a name directory.

3. Client locates server in a name directory.


This article lists such scenarios from aspects of Middle Ware and Network.

Middle Ware


A component registers itself in the registry table, while clients locate it from registry table.

An active component registers itself with a Moniker in ROT (Running Object Table), while a client uses the Moniker to find the active component from ROT.


Clients can ask services from Interface Repository.


The following code is extracted from <<Core Java 2 Volume II: Advanced Features>>.

ORB orb = ORB.init(args, NULL);

String [] Services = orb.list_initial_services();

org.omg.CORBA.Object object = orb.resolve_initial_references("NameService");

NamingContext namingContext = NamingContexthelper.narrow(objcet);



rmiregistry for RMI.

The following code is extracted from <<Core Java 2 Volume II: Advanced Features>>.

String url = getCodeBase().getHost();

url = "rmi://" + url;

centralWarehouse = (Warehouse)Naming.lookup(url + "/central_warehouse");



A server needs to bind itself to port number before a client can connect it.

Name Registration and Resolution

Network programming concerns Address Families, Name Registration and Resolution.

The following table is from << Network Programming for Microsoft Windows >>.

Name Space Description Type

NS_SAP Service Advertising Protocol (SAP) name space; used on IPX networks Dynamic

NS_NDS NetWare Directory Services (NDS) name space; also used on IPX networks Persistent

NS_DNS Domain Name System (DNS) name space; most commonly found on TCP/IP networks and on the Internet Static

ND_NTDS Windows NT domain space; protocol-independent name space found on Windows 2000
