An Instant Classic,
By A Customer
This review is from: Advanced CORBA Programming with C++ (APC) (Paperback)
Just like the venerable Unix Network Programming and the Gang of Four Design Patterns books, this book is destined to be a classic. I honestly wish I'd had this book four years ago when I started working with CORBA for the first time because life would've been SO much easier. The authors have distilled the CORBA specs, mixed in some historical perspective and design rationale, and put in a heavy does of serious experience to come up with a book that simplifies my life with its completeness.
If you're going to do CORBA, or you just want to learn about it, and you're a hands-on, no-nonsense person, then this book is for you. It won't replace the OMG specs, but it makes them MUCH easier to understand.
