The Trader Service was designed to provide access to CORBA objects based upon capabilities as opposed to name or interface type. The Trader Service is a factory since its purpose is to return other CORBA Objects. Unlike the Naming Service, a global name or identifier is NOT used to specify the CORBA Object to return. The Trader Service has been likened to the Yellow Pages, while the Naming Service is more like the White Pages.
