Java, CORBA, and distributed computing are all hot technologies. The authors of Java Programming with CORBA show you how to combine them all in order to create state-of-the-art distributed systems. This text, which is good as an introduction or an ongoing reference, shows off the advantages Java offers for writing remote distributed applications using CORBA.
Java Programming with CORBA begins with a tour of what CORBA is (a vendor-neutral standard) and how it enables distributed computing. The authors cover the nuts and bolts of remote invocation, Interface Definition Language (IDL), and Java Remote Method Invocation (RMI), as well as built-in services in CORBA for locating objects, security, and events. They also introduce the Visigenic Visibroker object request broker (ORB) (though all the code should work with other ORBs as well).
This text also offers a quick tour of Java and the advantages it offers for writing distributed code with its RMI capability. Sample code, including a room-booking system, shows off the details of actually using CORBA. Advanced topics include how to use advanced IDL features and security and how to enhance distributed performance with multithreading. In all, the authors make a good case that CORBA and Java are tools whose time has come. This book is a wise choice for anyone thinking of working in CORBA with Java. -- Richard Dragan [via]
