Hi, Lee
So far CORBA is the only multi-platform, multi-language solution for systems integration. CORBA market exists in from real-time & embedded systems to the large, mission-critical systems.
However, CORBA is somewhat complicated, and CORBA is not suitable for all requirements. It is likely to be appropriate when a distributed system must be created to link different platforms, programs written in different languages, or legacy systems and data stores. Size, complexity, and a need for security and high performance are also indicators.
CORBA may be inappropriate if the system is limited to a single computer, a single language, or even a single operating system -- especially if an all-Microsoft solution is envisaged. It may also be unsuitable if the software is "throwaway," or if the assigned developers lack the ability or experience to use it effectively.

Doug,
Thank you for your detailed expl. I heard that Corba was popular during last two years, and now is down-trend. It that true?
Thank
