I am trying to develop a system with different components whose architecture is as follows:
1)Front tier using VB.
2)Middle tier will have Weblogic App Server with EJB deployed.
3)Oracle Database
4)CORBA for connecting Front and Middle Tier.
Is this possible. I have a good working knowledge of EJB and App Server, VB and ORACLE. However I lack understanding of how to use CORBA and connect a Microsoft Front Tier with a Java Middle Tier.
Can anybody provide me some relevant information regarding the same so that I can start experimenting with it. Any link or book that helps in the above context

Rahul,
1. A commercial COM-CORBA bridge. (I am not aware of any open source one.. a good search might lead you to one.)
2. Web protocols. The VB front end may use HTTP to connect to the Weblogic server.
3. Custom sockets. The VB front end may use custom sockets and a custom protocol to talk to the Weblogic server.
4. Web services. The server could be made to present its services as web services.
