Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0471295183, Paperback)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.
This text first offers a nicely comprehensive tour of CORBA, from the basics of Interface Definition Language (IDL), Object Request Brokers (ORBs), Portable Object Adapters (POAs), and built-in CORBA services, to an overview of the new CORBA domain-specific business objects (for areas such as finance and health care).
Throughout the early sections of the book, the book takes care to highlight new features of CORBA 3 for more experienced readers. But even if CORBA is brand-new to you, this title will explain what you need to know to get started--whether you use C++, Java, or even COBOL to write business objects.
Because CORBA is an open standard (defined with input from hundreds of vendors), it has always been something of a moving target. Particular ORB products may not implement every feature in the same way. The second half of this book looks at CORBA in the real world. First, the text surveys a half-dozen current CORBA products, and then provides an excellent case study (for a point-of-sale system in a grocery store) implemented in separate versions for C++, Java, and COBOL. Better yet, the book gives development and deployment hints for specific ORBs so you can run the sample code on your particular vendor's implementation of CORBA.
CORBA 3 Fundamentals and Programming is really two books in one: an excellent guide to basic and advanced CORBA, with special attention paid to new features in version 3, and a practical tutorial for building a small CORBA-based system. This book's a great choice for any software developer who wants to start using CORBA for real-world projects. --Richard Dragan
