Book Description

27 Mar 1997 0471179868 978-0471179863
A complete guide to building powerful business applications using CORBA–based distributed objects.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent reference book. 6 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent reference book for Java CORBA programming. It is concise and well-indexed. It is not a "how-to-program CORBA from Java" book. Although it does have a number of good examples and some tutorial sections, Orfali & Harkey's "Client/Server Programming with Java and CORBA" is a better book for programming "how to" information. Similarly, if you are looking for more information about the underlying protocol, Henning & Vinoski's "Advanced CORBA Programming with C++" has better low-level CORBA coverage.

I am an instructor for Visigenic Software, Inc. (now Inprise), so I have extensive exposure to training materials and information in this subject area. I received a copy of this book several months ago, but only recently got the time to read it thoroughly. Wow. This book is terrific in many ways. Firstly, it covers the "behind the scenes" aspects of the OMG process and makes numerous references to the way things happen in the standards world. This is only lightly treated in other texts. Next, with most of the vendor-specific dependencies removed, I discovered a number of techniques for making an implementation more independent of the ORB. Thirdly, there is a terrific coverage of the POA -- the serious OA of the near future. Finally, the last several chapters are devoted to the issues in producing a *real* implementation. I found a treasure trove of information relevant to deployment and systems architecture. I have not seen a book as well-rounded and practical as this one. If you are concerned about actually *building* systems using CORBA and Java and not just getting a trivial example to work, then this is the one for you!

2.0 out of 5 stars Code isn't easy to follow 16 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
In the opening chapters, it is difficult to see what code is generated and what code needs to be written. After trying to use this book for a few hours, I turned to the Client/Server Programming with Java and Corba book by Orfali and Harkey and quickly was up and running. The Vogel book just isn't as clear.

I found this book to be very useful. We teach a number of CORBA classes in Java and C++, and so far this is the best one I've seen for developers. Lots of code examples and good explanations.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy it unless you use Borland ORB 31 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is only useful if u have Borland's ORB. The examples DO NOT RUN without it. Go with SUN documentation if you wonna write truly portable clients

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Professionals 11 Sep 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you are competent in Java and have experience using CORBA in a C/C++ environment, this is THE book to read! Our company has a large number of developers who have been using CORBA in a C++ environment who are being thrust into the Java world very quickly, and this is the perfect book for them. Unlike any of Orfali's books (practically the only other author in the arena it seems), you won't find cartoon martians or management-level pep-talks, or discussions of OTHER distributed environments (i.e. DCOM) in this essential volume.
On the flip side, if you are new to CORBA, or have no experience in Java, you will need more background to get the most of this book.
