	 * An ORB or CORBA service that needs its own thread-specific
	 * state extends the CORBA package's <code>Current</code>.
	 * Users of the service can obtain an instance of the appropriate
	 * <code>Current</code> interface by invoking
	 * <code>ORB.resolve_initial_references</code>.
	 * For example, the Security service obtains the <code>Current</code>
	 * relevant to it by invoking
	 * <PRE>
	 *    ORB.resolve_initial_references("SecurityCurrent");
	 * </PRE>
	 * <P>
	 * A CORBA service does not have to use this method of keeping context
	 * but may choose to do so.
	 * <P>
	 * Methods on classes that implement from <code>Current</code> access state
	 * associated with the thread in which they are invoked, not state associated
	 * with the thread from which the <code>Current</code> was obtained.
	 *  Current objects must not be exported to other processes, or externalized
	 *  with ORB.object_to_string. If any attempt is made to do so, the offending
	 *  operation will raise a MARSHAL system exception.
	 * @see <a href="package-summary.html#unimpl"><code>portable</code>
