Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA): 

The architecture and specifications described in the Common Object Request Broker: Architec­ture and Specifications books are aimed at software designers and developers who want to produce applications that comply with OMG standards for the Object Request Broker (ORB). The benefit of compliance is, in general, to be able to produce interoperable applications that are based on dis­tributed, interoperating objects.

COM and CORBA(R) Side by Side: Architectures, Strategies, and Implementations (Paperback) by Jason Pritchard
ISBN: 0201379457

For today's distributed computing, the two biggest players are undoubtedly Microsoft DCOM and OMG CORBA. Evaluating which standard is best for your organization is the main objective of COM and CORBA Side by Side. Written for the IS manager or designer planning for distributed computing, this book provides a thorough introduction to these two difficult technologies while showing the strengths of each and even ways to let COM and CORBA work together on the enterprise.

The major strength of this book is its parallel presentation of key concepts of distributed computing using both DCOM and CORBA. The author shows how objects work under each standard and how to program with them using C++, Java, and Visual Basic (for DCOM only). (Short, useful code excerpts show the different programming techniques with each standard.) He explains how distributed computing works in general as well as the specifics and advantages of DCOM and CORBA for today's enterprise. (The basic differences remain--Microsoft is a proprietary standard with great development tools and little cross-platform support while CORBA is a strong cross-platform option with fewer options for development tools.) Throughout this book, the author offers several assessment guides for choosing which standard to adopt for your organization based on its needs.


CORBA 3 Fundamentals and Programming, 2nd Edition

CORBA 3 Fundamentals and Programming, 2nd Edition (Paperback) by Jon Siegel
ISBN: 0471295183

CORBA is arguably the most mature standard for sharing objects, and version 3 offers an even richer array of features for powering the next generation of distributed systems. CORBA 3 Fundamentals and Programming provides a comprehensive introduction to understanding and programming with CORBA. Mixing a high-level technology guide with an excellent hands-on tutorial for a sample project involving today's most popular ORBs, this title delivers a thorough and practical introduction to the latest in CORBA--suitable for beginner and expert alike.

Enterprise Security with EJB and CORBA(r) (Paperback) by Bret Hartman

Enterprise Security with EJB and CORBA (Paperback) by Bret Hartman, Donald J. Flinn, Konstantin Beznosov
ISBN: 0471401315
Did you know that most corporate computer security breaches are inside jobs by trusted employees? This book addresses the need in the era of multi-tier systems to implement security solutions across all enterprise applications, not just firewalls that target intrusion from the outside. With nationally recognized CORBA security experts Bret Hartman, Donald J. Flinn, and Konstantin Beznosov, this book shows application developers how to build secure, real-world applications that deliver tightly integrated security at all system levels using the latest component technologies and tools. Coverage also includes a sample e-commerce system built using Java with EJB and CORBA as well as case studies of implementations in finance, manufacturing, and telecom.


Distributed Object Architectures with CORBA

Distributed Object Architectures with CORBA (Paperback) by Henry Balen; Mark Elenko, Jan Jones, Gordon Palumbo
ISBN: 0521654181

Distributed Object Architectures with CORBA is a guide to designing software comprised of distributed components. While it is based on OMG's Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) standard, the principles also apply to architecture built with other technology (such as Microsoft's DCOM). As ORB products evolve to incorporate new additions to CORBA, the knowledge and experience required to build stable and scalable systems is not widespread. With this volume the reader can develop the skills and knowledge that are necessary for building such systems. The book assumes a familiarity with object-oriented concepts and the basics of CORBA. Software developers who are new to building systems with CORBA-based technologies will find this a useful guide to effective development.


JavaTM Programming with CORBATM : Advanced Techniques for Building Distributed Applications

JavaTM Programming with CORBATM : Advanced Techniques for Building Distributed Applications (Paperback) by Gerald Brose, Andreas Vogel, Keith Duddy
ISBN: 0471376817

The leading guide for Java developers who build business applications with CORBA.

Acknowledged experts present advanced techniques and real-world examples for building both simple and complex programs using Java with CORBA. The authors begin with a quick overview of CORBA, Java, object request brokers (ORBs), and EJB components, then quickly move on to show how to use them to build complete Java applications. This new volume features in-depth code examples, as well as expanded coverage of cutting-edge topics, including Portable Object Adaptor (POA), Remote Method Invocation (RMI) over IIOP, and EJB.
