About the Authors
  • Building Distributed Object-Oriented Business Systems Using CORBA guides developers, programmers, and software managers through the development of object-oriented, distributed business systems using CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture). CORBA allows vendors to provide compatible components for the implementation of distributed systems in heterogeneous environments involving multiple operating systems and programming languages. The authors use their experience as developers, trainers and mentors to provide a solid understanding of CORBA technology by examining a realistic example system. They introduce concepts and terminology and lead up to a strategic architecture for distributed objects computing. They present CORBA in detail while introducing the reader to project management issues and the requirements for a business objects facility to integrate CORBA components and provide an abstraction for application development. Later chapters explore design issues, programming, and incorporating product features. The accompanying CD-ROM contains a demonstration application and a copy of the Enterprise Business Objects Facility (EBOF) developed at EDS.

    • CORBA is fast becoming the standard technology for strategic business architecture
    • The first book on building distributed systems that deals with the design and programming complexities of building such systems
    • Includes a demonstration version of the implementation of a business object facility built at EDS
