Create industrial-strength enterprise applications using Java and CORBA

Java developers, here's your chance to quickly master the skills you need to create powerful, CORBA-based business applications that interact with objects located anywhere on a network or the Internet, regardless of differences in operating systems or languages.

With this second edition, experts Vogel and Duddy have written two books in one: the first is a step-by-step introduction to programming with Java ORBs; the second is a solutions guide that provides detailed examples and design patterns for next-generation, Internet-based distributed systems. The authors provide many real-world examples to illustrate programming techniques, including complete code samples (not just snippets).

This completely updated and revised Second Edition features new and expanded coverage of:
* CORBA 2.1
* Java IDL
* Such advanced features as DII, DSI, and ANY
* CORBA Services for Naming, Trading, Events, and Security
* CORBA Beans
* Proven design patterns for Internet-based applications based on extensive, real-world project experience.

All examples are written using the Visigenic Visibroker ORB, but the techniques shown will work with any ORB you choose. Code and patterns are provided in source form in the book; complete source code is provided on the companion website.

Java Programming with CORBA, Second Edition gets you up to speed on what you need to know to satisfy the growing demand for fully interoperable, distributed, object-oriented enterprise applications.

On the book's companion website -www.wiley.com/compbooks/vogel-you'll find:
* All code from the book, ready to download
* Sample ORBs, including Visibroker.
