CORBA Distributed Objects is a practical guide to the CORBA standard, the leading standard for writing distributed systems and integrating software components. Orbix is used throughout to demonstrate the ease of use and power of CORBA. Drawn from personal experience of implementing and using the standard, this book demonstrates the way in which CORBA can be used to write the components of a distributed software system. Its pragmatic, hands-on approach will make it an invaluable reference for experienced programmers and system developers with a working knowledge of C++ - those looking to acquire either an overview or a full understanding of the CORBA specifications.

This Book:

  • provides a broad overview of CORBA as well as the detailed technical information necessary to fully understand CORBA
  • introduces the principles of distributed computing and how CORBA permits interoperability across networks, operating systems and programming languages
  • grows a running example to illustrate the most important features of the standar
  • covers advanced CORBA features such as dynamic invocations and the CORBAservices; and also advanced Orbix features such as filters and thread suppor
  • provides separate detailed descriptions that will act as references for users of CORB
  • discusses some of the other technologies that can be integrated with CORBA, such as OLE and databases
  • briefly illustrates the Java-based OrbixWebT
