Candle is a programming language used to develop systems with Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) in real-time and embedded environments. Created by Douglas C. Schmidt at Washington University, it is an extension of C++. The language provides automated garbage collection, local or remote method invocation, exception handling, and support for distributed system requirements without the need for additional middleware. Candle achieves this through compiler technology that generates highly efficient code without sacrificing determinism or predictability required by embedded systems in industries like aerospace and defense.
