Hi all,
I's pretty novice in these but pls advice?
With J2EE, do we still need CORBA? I feel that J2EE is much easier to implement than CORBA.
What is the rational to choose CORBA instead of J2EE other than languange independence?

"kevinyap",
The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements.
Thanks.
-Peter
To answer your question:
"CORBA is the acronym for Common Object Request Broker Architecture, OMG's open, vendor-independent architecture and infrastructure that computer applications use to work together over networks. Using the standard protocol IIOP, a CORBA-based program from any vendor, on almost any computer, operating system, programming language, and network, can interoperate with a CORBA-based program from the same or another vendor, on almost any other computer, operating system, programming language, and network." from CORBA FAQ
While J2EE is an entire framework for doing Enterprise Application Development. With J2EE, you can choose to use CORBA as your middleware messaging mechanism or some anything else, e.g. RMI.
If you want, you can view CORBA is being one of the available components in the entire J2EE framework, so one isn't necessary a substitute for the other.
