5.0 out of 5 stars Simply fantastic
A book of this calibre need no long rambling review. If you are looking to deploy complex corba solutions and use java somewhere in the mix then this book is for you. This is the bible as far as java + corba go!

3.0 out of 5 stars Lack of good examples
I've the 2nd edition and although the book is nice there are a big lack of good examples and there are mistake in the code too. The table of contents is the same so i may guess they just update the material to follow the new spec' of CORBA, which may mean that the lack of good examples will go on.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great Java/Corba book, but not for novices., 3 Jun 2007
This review is from: Java Programming with CORBA: Advanced Techniques for Building Distributed Applications (OMG) (Paperback)
This book is a bit heavy to read. I suggest you get a background introduction online first. Otherwise, it may leave you bewildered and confused with alot of technical material without some clear grounding in objects and references. There isn't enough balance in this book between theory and practical application. But, gives you a full in depth understanding of what Corba is and it's future. Make sure you understand fully how Java works before embarking on reading this book. However, it does cover some fundamental theories of Java and relates them to how they are extended in Corba.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Tutorial and Reference Book, 15 Aug 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Java Programming with CORBA: Advanced Techniques for Building Distributed Applications (OMG) (Paperback)
An excellent book if you are new to Corba, or if you are looking to hone advanced techniques.
Covers, amongst other subjects, programming Portable Interceptors, and Portable Object Adapters, all with working Java examples.
The authors speak from experience. Specifically G Brose is the principle author and maintainer of the JacORB project. An excellent, and well specified open source Java ORB.
This book is a must for those interested in distributed computing and wondering what Corba has to offer.
