Corba Component Model gets thumbs up

Might be a year late, but who cares

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

It would have been a big surprise if the OMG had not approved the Corba Component Model (CCM) specification yesterday in San Jose. The final nod will come in November at the OMG's board meeting. CCM is based on CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture), which is the most widely used cross platform glue. CCM is programming language and platform independent, and can integrate Java, COBOL, CM/DCOM, C & C++, Ada and Smalltalk. It will interoperate with Enterprise JavaBeans (which is a sub-set) and ActiveX. This means that Java and other code can coexist very cosily on the CORBA platform at last. CORBA 3, as it had been known, is about a year later than expected, but for those concerned with enterprise application integration, the trend du jour, it should be a welcome development. Microsoft withdrew from cross-platform compatibility some time ago, so it is unlikely that it will be able to corrupt CORBA in the same way as it attempted with Java. The CORBA 3 spec includes Internet integration, quality of service control, and CORBA components and scripting. Gripping stuff. ®
