From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  Object Request Broker
      (ORB) Part of the OMG CORBA specification,
     an ORB's basic function is to pass method invocation
     requests to the correct objects and return the results to
     the caller.
     To achieve this the ORB must be able must be able to identify
     and locate objects, handle connections from invoker and the
     data returned from methods.  Communication between the ORB and
     applications are achieved through IDL stubs and skeletons
     whilst the OMG has specified IIOP as the protocol through
     which ORBs may communicate with each other.  Using IIOP, an
     ORB may request method invocations from a remote object.
