CORBA, like RPC, DCOM, RMI, and more recently SOAP, is
glue used to tie together programs that run partly on one
computer, and partly on another, often in different languages.
It was introduced as a standard in 1991, and has been
used by large companies for many years. However,
only recently have high quality open source implementations
and good documentation become available.
Dan and Chris will introduce you to CORBA programming
with a couple of small demos and a war story or two.
