Taken from the Gnome & Corba manual:

gnorba is mainly a wrapper around two corba functions (CORBA_ORB_init and CORBA_ORB_resolve_initial_services) and implements an Activation Directory. The Activation Directory is a filesystem which holds a list of the available CORBA servers on a machine which are not necessarily running.
