Class NameComponentHelper

  extended byorg.omg.CosNaming.NameComponentHelper

public abstract class NameComponentHelper
extends Object

Many of the operations defined on a naming context take names as parameters. Names have structure. A name is an ordered sequence of components.

A name with a single component is called a simple name; a name with multiple components is called a compound name. Each component except the last is used to name a context; the last component denotes the bound object.

A name component consists of two attributes: the identifier attribute and the kind attribute. Both the identifier attribute and the kind attribute are represented as IDL strings. The kind attribute adds descriptive power to names in a syntax-independent way. Examples of the value of the kind attribute include c_source, object_code, executable, postscript, or " ".
