This book introduces you to a bold new generation of Java programming. With the advent of Java object request brokers (ORBs), it is now easier than ever for Java programmers to build sophisticated, CORBA–based, object–oriented applications that interact with CORBA objects anywhere on a network, regardless of differences in operating systems or languages. The first practical guide to this important new type of Java programming, Java Programming with CORBA shows you how.
Step–by–step, authors Vogel and Duddy school you in the skills and know–how you need to write powerful, enterprise–wide business applications using Java ORBs. They begin with a very accessible introduction to CORBA and ORB concepts and tools. They then cut to the chase with practical demonstrations of how to use those tools to build Java applications. Many real–world examples, along with complete instructions on how to build both simple and complex programs, shorten the learning curve considerably.
Java Programming with CORBA is an excellent guide for novices and experienced Java/CORBA programmers alike. Beginners get complete tutorials on CORBA and ORBs, and appendixes featuring an overview of commercial ORBs, complete source code listings, and a glossary of terms. Experienced Java/CORBA developers will find detailed coverage of such advanced topics as TypeCodes, the Dynamic Invocation Interface, CORBA Naming and Trading Services, Tie mechanism, Applet server, and more.
