I don't know if it works with ORBit, but it is valid under CORBA.

See Steve's and Michi's book (link on chapter 11.7.4 p. 484 "Default Servants".
The RequestProcessingPolicy value USE_DEFAULT_SERVANT should do the job.

The only thing you need to take care of is that your servants don't hold object specific state information.
