Passing Objects by reference

(OP)
About a month ago I created a program in C++ using CORBA which does not use IDL files.  I used the supplier-consumer model in the event service and wrote my code to take care of naming and orb references....etc....

Now I am going back to that code and I need to add in a structure and pass it by value from the supplier to the consumer.

I have three different CORBA books and they only mention that this is possible, but they do not mention how to do it.

How can I pass the structure in by value?  This is no "CORBA::Struct" type!

In my main function, my code might look like this:

ProducerCorba<CORBA::Float> producer("accountBalance","float");
int savings = 1500.00
producer.Produce(savings);

I wrote the function called ProducerCorba, and I use the strings after producer to take care of the naming.

My first thought was to say:

ProducerCorba<CORBA::Any> producer("accountStruct","struct");
producer.Produce(savingsStruct);

But this is not legal because there is no compatiblity between type struct and type CORBA::Any

I APPRECIATE ANY HELP YOU HAVE TO OFFER!!!
