Among the ways to do this is CORBA AMI (Asynchronous Messaging). You pass
the object reference of the object that's waiting for the callback. In some
CORBA implementations you specify the signature of the synchronous message,
and indicate as a configuration option that you also want an asynch version,
and much of the rest is done automatically by the IDL compiler. You still
have to fill in the implementation of the callback, of course.
