Common Object Request Broker Architecture, a standard and an infrastructure for components (programs) that cooperate across the web in a "three-tiered" model (client, server, and middleware: e.g. the broker-middleman). Establishes an "object-oriented" framework, a standard for its objects to describe themselves upon query, essentially how these web-aware objects must look from the outside, and how they play together.
