  • Patent number: 5483652
    Abstract: Method and apparatus facilitating the processing of a request from a client application for a service, or for access to a resource, in a distributed computing environment. A shared repository is organized in such a manner that binding information, defining how a server is accessed, can be stored in the repository and accessed by multiple clients without their having knowledge of more than the common name for the requested service, or the common name of a specific resource for performing the service. The binding information for each server is stored in a server entry sub-hierarchy of the namespace in the shared repository, and the full names of server entries are stored in a service entry sub-hierarchy of the namespace and a resource entry sub-hierarchy of the namespace.
