Persistent caching of HTTP traffic has been shown to deliver large benefits and HTTP proxy servers are now widely deployed. IIOP enabled web browsers which enable more interactive multimedia applications are now available. When these new capabilities become widely used IIOP enabled proxy servers will be needed. They will need to support greater consistency of state than current proxy server caches, without requiring modification of the application code. On the other hand, an IIOP enabled proxy server can provide significantly enhanced benefits such as middleware based multicast and mobility. This paper presents an implemented design for an IIOP enabled proxy server which solves some of the inherent problems and demonstrates the benefits.
