ABSTRACT
(1) (Interface Definition Language, Interface Description Language) A language used to describe the interface to a software component or routine in a manner that is not dependent on a particular programming language or operating system. Because an IDL is independent of language and machine, it enables communications between applications running in different operating environments. For example, the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) discloses the interface for routines that provide Web services. Likewise, the CORBA system, a service oriented architecture (SOA) that predates Web services, uses an IDL. See WSDL and CORBA.
