About the Authors
  • Distributed Object Architectures with CORBA is a guide to creating a software architecture comprising 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 book the reader can develop the skills and knowledge that is 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 book a useful guide to effective development.

    • This book focuses on architecture, whereas most books on CORBA deal with the basics of CORBA and object-oriented systems
    • Based on the experiences of a veteran consultant and technologist and will be a suitable guide for people who wish to build their own systems
    • Chapters are self-contained and modular
