Hi Peter,

From what I understand, the ORB can "pump" the data into an "out"

it wise to use memcpy on the server side to copy the data over and over
again into the "out" sequence buffer ?

IMHO, it's a lot easier to write the image somewhere on the server,
return the url (ftp:// or maybe NFS?) to the client using CORBA. Of
course, in CORBA it should *also* work, but it's a lot more work...

Most event interfaces would call a method on the client (client and server concepts blur easily ;-) ). Can't you simply create an object in the client, pass it to the server and call a method from the server once an image is available (I did this many times).

Problem: If the client is busy the server will wait (perhaps oneway will help here?)
