Product Description

The first wave of Java programs worked only on single desktop computers - they couldn't talk or share information with other computers, which limited their usefulness for most serious business applications. This text, written in collaboration with the OMG (Object Management Group), covers Java programming with distributed objects. This generation of Java program will be able to talk with any computer - regardless of differences in the operating systems and computer languages they use. The book shows Java developers how to use the new industry standard for distributed objects, CORBA. After setting out the basic building blocks, the authors move on to demonstrate to developers how to use them to build real Java applications. The authors provide real-world business examples, and show how to build both simple and more complex programs using the Java ORB tools. Review

The thesis of this dense book is that the integration of the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) and Java in the form of a Java Object Request Broker (ORB) makes for easier programming of powerful distributed systems. The authors assume that the reader knows object-oriented programming and has experience with distributed systems. The three Java ORBs featured are Visibroker for Java, OrbixWeb, and Sun Joe.

In the first few chapters, Vogel and Duddy give an overview of Java and CORBA concepts and introduce Java ORBs. They continue with examples of the use of Java ORBs, starting with the classic "Hello World." Additional chapters cover the Object Management Group Interface Definition Language (OMGIDL) mapping to Java, the fundamental CORBA services called the Naming and Trading Service, and advanced features including TypeCodes, the Dynamic Invocation Interface, the Tie mechanism, and others. Finally, they cover the creation of a hotel booking application to demonstrate how to use the objects described.

Appendices include a detailed OMG and CORBA reference and a listing of all the source code referenced in the book. (The source code can also be downloaded from the Web.) This concentrated volume reads like a textbook and the authors even suggest that it can be used for self-teaching or as material for a training course.
