CORBA For Real Programmers

CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture) is at the center of software development for building distributed applications. Distributed applications are designed to run over a network regardless of the type of computer one uses to access the network and the application. CORBA enables software developers to create software applications by fashoning and assembling software components piece by piece. These software components are then stored and called when needed for a program to run. With this type of architecture, a software engineer can create a basic program and store it in pieces so that when a Macintosh user accesses the program, the Macintosh version will run while the Windows 98 user will run the Windows 98 version. The core software may remain the same, with different pieces designed to support the different operating systems.The CORBA standard is defined and managed by the Object Management Group (OMG), an industry-wide consortium which develops standards for object-oriented programming and applications. It is the premier software development project of the OMG. CORBA for Real Programmers is designed for developers who may be familiar with basic CORBA requirements, rules, and procedures, but need a complete guide for learning about essential CORBA syntax and references. n CD-ROM contains a trial version of CORBA utilities and code examples along with other freeware and shareware concerning CORBAn Focuses on the specifics of the CORBA standard and is intended to be used as a "desk reference" rather than a tutorial

This book is no more than a rewrite of the OMG specifications (which cost nothing) and a poor one, at that. Must be dangerously close to violating copyright rules too. Complete waste of time.

If you bought this book to learn CORBA programming, then good luck. Most of the information seems to be from the OMG web pages. Not a single example of a CORBA implemention. This is one of those books you'll soon see for $.99 at the grocery store.

As other reviewers have pointed out, the content of this book is lacking; in addition, the organization of concepts within it is poor, and there are grammatical errors throughout. The author and proofreader should both be ashamed.

Corba great language! Terrible book!Why do you think eBay sells the for $ 1.00 and sometimes don't bring any bids at that price.A real money and time waste!

Never have I seen someone plagerize someone elses work like this! I've actually heard this guy speak and it sounds as though he's only made it through life stealing off of the effort of others. Definitely and 'not recommended' reading.
