11.5. Life Cycle Service

This service defines a standard protocol by which clients of distributed objects can cause the creation, copying, movement, and deletion of remote objects. The service is defined around the concept of object factories, which are responsible for creating objects of specific types.

All objects participating in the Life Cycle Service implement the LifeCycleObject interface. There is no specific interface defined for object factories, but they can be located using the FactoryFinder interface.

Some of the interfaces in this service reference Naming Service interfaces. Also, when dealing with connected graphs of objects, the Relationship Service structures are referenced.
