Item description for Implementing Distributed Systems with Java and CORBA by Markus Aleksy...

The book addresses readers interested in the design and development of distributed software systems relying on the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA). CORBA is an industry standard that has considerably changed the way modern information systems are developed. It enables the platform-independent and programming-language-independent implementation of distributed object-oriented systems and also supports the migration of legacy systems into modern architectures. The book is intended in particular for students of computer science and management information systems in their graduate studies, as well as for practitioners and professional software developers who are looking for fast access to CORBA technology and want to profit from meaningful code examples. Three different ORBs, examples, and exercises with solutions are available for download.

Reviews - What do customers think about Implementing Distributed Systems with Java and CORBA?

you might regret this book  Jul 22, 2006
Do you really want to do this? Learn how to use CORBA in Java? Think carefully about this initial step. Because the book does not really address well the rationale for doing so. It basically presupposes that it is useful to learn and proceeds to teach you.

Ok, under the latter assumption, the book does a credible job. Explaining key ideas like the Interface Description Language (IDL), and the Object Resource Broker (ORB). There are code snippets in Java to show how to stitch all this together.

But the basic problem with CORBA is never explained. Even before Java got used with it, CORBA was running into big implementation problems. The exchange of binary messages turns out to be a critically awkward feature. That makes cross platform coding and debugging very hard. And CORBA code tended to be monolithic. Have you heard all the fuss about Web Services? While these are still being investigated, a big reason for the interest is that they seem much easier than CORBA. They use XML text messages, that can give more modular code.
