This concludes our simple CORBA example.
It shows that CORBA is ripe to be exploited,
on a small scale in practical student assignments,
but, as testified by the literature, also on a large scale
in business-critical applications.
- CORBA is ripe to be exploited in OO --
- the broker is a useful abstraction
- forget about the wiring - concentrate on application logic
In a multi-lingual, and possibly multi-orb, environment
the broker abstraction may act
as an intermediary, providing a short-hand for
common operations and abstracting from the details
in which the language bindings and ORBs may differ.
As in other areas, in CORBA programming it is good advice
to start small and grow incrementally.
Develop your system in such a way that you can
gradually forget about the wiring, and
concentrate on the application logic instead.
