Książka w języku angielskimAs it stands, there are two core approaches to distributed objects: OMG's server-side standard, CORBA, and Microsoft's client-side stronghold, COM. The trick for programmers looking to simplify and increase flexibility in their systems is to get these two approaches to work together. Expert help is now available in this practical guide to writing programs that take advantage of the strengths of both industry standards. The authors describe exactly how to write hybrid programs, build real-world systems using COM with CORBA, partition applications, and write COM clients that use CORBA objects and services. The book also discusses key traps and pitfalls to avoid and advises readers on the best solutions to common programming problems encountered when integrating these approaches.
