CORBA enables objects interaction in a transparent manner according to location and heterogeneity. However, this kind of platforms lack mobility functions. That is why we propose a solution based on a generic implementation of CORBA's LifeCycle Service. Our mechanism relies on intermediary objects that are used to encapsulate mobility management.
