"CORBA encompasses a series of standards and protocols for interprocess communication in a heterogeneous environment. Using CORBA, developers can easily write applications for many different operating systems at once, in any number of languages. It thus comes as no surprise that the CORBA specification has caught on so quickly as the standard for interprocess communication. Mike Olson is your guide through this introduction to Corba in this first part of a two-part series."

"If you've ever programmed a network application, you've probably struggled to make the code communicate with machines built around different architectures. Perhaps you've had to use remote code written in a different language. Such needs are common in application development, and many tools, such as remote procedure calls, have emerged to support them. In the more complex and more powerful world of objects, many of the same old problems lurk, but the same old tools don't quite work as solutions. In response to this gap, a group of vendors and developers formed the Object Management Group (OMG), and, among other efforts, developed the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) specification. CORBA encompasses a series of standards and protocols for interprocess communication in a heterogeneous environment. With CORBA, developers can easily connect processes running on different machines, with different operating systems, and with code written in different languages."
