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.


slide: Conclusions

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.
