Hi all,
I have some set of classes these classes are to be accessed from a remote machine, Can any one suggest a design for this.
What is preferable either RMI or CORBA ?
Are there any links for this ?

If the access is to be direct from other Java apps, RMI sounds logical.
CORBA gives more flexibility as you can call the classes from non-Java apps as well but at the expense of more expensive infrastructure and more coding effort.
EJB is another option, but has the same disadvantages as CORBA.
