Adaptability is one of the most important challenges in
modern distributed systems. It may be defined as the ease
with which a software application satisfies the different
system constraints and the requirements of users and
other applications. Adaptability is needed because
distributed systems are inherently open, heterogeneous,
and dynamic environments integrating a wide range of
platforms, operating systems and applications from a
number of different sources.
In this paper, we propose to use mobile proxies to
provide adaptability in distributed applications integrated
using the CORBA technology. Downloading stubs and
skeletons at runtime allows the adaptation of either client
or server interfaces as well as the protocol linking the
