Inside CORBA (Addison-Wesley Object Technology)

"This book breaks the taking the reader through the entire spectrum of the distributed object approach, from requirements analysis through systems development, with a thorough treatment of relevant standards." -Dr. Richard M. Soley, Technical Director, Object Management Group Inside CORBA is a comprehensive and authoritative guide to distributed object architecture, software development, and CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture) standards. CORBA is a consensus standard from industry that has transformed the way information systems are developed, both for creating distributed object-oriented systems and for migrating legacy systems to modern architecture. This must-read for all managers, architects, and developers of distributed systems begins by addressing the key organizational challenges to the adoption of CORBA and the essential management guidance necessary to ensure its success. Following this introduction, the authors present a user guide to the CORBA standards, complete with examples of their application. The user guide also features in-depth coverage of the Interface Definition Language (IDL), including the latest presentation of the new CORBA IDL Language Mapping for Java, and comprehensive information on the CORBA 2 standard and the CORBAservices. In addition, this book provides invaluable technical assistance on the application of CORBA by sharing essential lessons learned from experienced CORBA managers and architects and through the presentation of a case study. 0201895404B04062001

I agree with other reviewers who have said that this book lacks issue for developers. The examples, and diagrams, are absolutely atrocious. In addition, I don't think that it offers a decent overview of CORBA. Indeed, the information is all there (that is, overview info), but it is embedded in a dry, repetitive, and big-worded style. Also, I wish that writers would someday learn what a split infinitive is, in order for them __to hopefully stop__ using them all the time!Some good titles coming out soon. Let's hope.-Nathan

What it is: A good introduction to what CORBA is and what it offers. The sections on the services and the IDL should provide a nice summary for the technical manager. The descriptions and comparisons of other distributed technologies are informative, and the systems engineering section is littered with information a manager needs to consider for a distributed development effort, with or without CORBA. What it is not: The book does not provide much for the developer. It does not contain any nuts and bolts insight for the new developer, but does state that their is approx 6 mo. rampup required. Overall: I thought that this is a book which should be read by any new manager and developer considering CORBA. Likely to be a reference for a manager and less to a developer, but definitely worth reading. A good companion book to this (opinion) would be Java Programming with CORBA, Vogel - Duddy (ISBN 0-471-17986-8) Small quip : Smalltalk community would appreciate "Smalltalk" instead of "SmallTalk".

This is a good book for a broad overview. Essentially, it is an executive summary in book form. The content is complete and useful, but the style is dry and the presentation uninspired. This is the bran-flakes of CORBA: good for you, but not particularly enjoyable. It is also almost useless for developers (but it doesn't seem to be targeted towards them either).
