Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Portable Distributed Objects, or PDO, is a programming API for creating object-oriented code that can be executed remotely on a network of computers. It was created by NeXT Computer, Inc. using their OpenStep system, whose use of Objective-C made the package very easy to write. It was characterized by its very light weight and high speed in comparison to similar systems such as CORBA. Versions of PDO were available for Solaris, HP-UX and all versions of the OPENSTEP system. A version that worked with Microsoft OLE was also available called D'OLE, allowing distributed code written using PDO on any platform to be presented on Microsoft systems as if they were local OLE objects.show more
