Hi,
This is my first posting to this forum.So I ve some basic queries regarding CORBA scenario.
1)WE have whole lot of software ready that is developed in C,C++ or VC++.our company wants it to be web based.So is it the right scenario to go for CORBA?
2)Right now we are directly using "exe"s using RunTime.getRunTime().exec method.It is sometimes executed sometimes not.
3)Another solution we have is to go for "Native methods".And use the various functions directly usin JNI.But it seems too difficult to convert all the functions to be useful in JNI.But in both the above cases we lose platform independentness.
4)So will it the best solution to go for CORBA?Ther are very few people who have actually worked on CORBA and particularly in "such" conditions.So shall we go for CORBA?
I have heard that IDL to Java is easy but it is difficult in case of IDL to C++.
Where can I get the best tool for such mapping between Java and C++.Because C++ code is too large and it is difficult to convert everything into Java.
So please help me b'cos I even don't know what to download for using CORBA and which is the best book?
