Java client


Is it possible to invoke a CORBA server API, using a java client.

What jar files are required. Are the client jar files available for free download, and use? Or is that licensed?

Can you please help me with the links or answer?



  • Hi Vishal,

    The standard Oracle JDK comes with a basic ORB that you can use to both implement servers and run clients. Obviously we would recommend one of our commercial offerings (Orbix or VisiBroker) ahead of this or JacORB if you are considering an Open Source alternative.

    The ORB in the JDK is really a bare bones offering and does not have any Implementation Repository to manage or distribute requests to services, a lot of bootstrapping must be done manually.

    Do you already have an ORB that you are using?
