4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent reference book.
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"...

2.0 out of 5 stars Code isn't easy to follow
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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you're developing CORBA with Java, this is the book., 24 Sep 1998
By A Customer
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Treatment of the Subject; A Must For Designers, 2 Sep 1998
By A Customer
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!
