||Here is the CORBA book that every C++ software engineer has been waiting for.
Advanced CORBA® Programming with C++ provides designers and developers with the
tools required to understand CORBA technology at the architectural, design, and source
code levels. This book offers hands-on explanations for building efficient applications, as
well as lucid examples that provide practical advice on avoiding costly mistakes. With
this book as a guide, programmers will find the support they need to successfully
undertake industrial-strength CORBA development projects.
The content is systematically arranged and presented so the book may be used as both a
tutorial and a reference. The rich example programs in this definitive text show CORBA
developers how to write clearer code that is more maintainable, portable, and efficient.
The authors’ detailed coverage of the IDL-to-C++ mapping moves beyond the mechanics
of the APIs to discuss topics such as potential pitfalls and efficiency. An in-depth
presentation of the new Portable Object Adapter (POA) explains how to take advantage
of its numerous features to create scalable and high-performance servers. In addition,
detailed discussion of advanced topics, such as garbage collection and multithreading,
provides developers with the knowledge they need to write commercial applications.
In-depth coverage of IDL, including common idioms and design trade-offs
Complete and detailed explanations of the Life Cycle, Naming, Trading, and Event
Discussion of IIOP and implementation repositories
Insight into the dynamic aspects of CORBA, such as dynamic typing and the new
Advice on selecting appropriate application architectures and designs
