The COM and CORBA technologies are often pitted against each other, viewed simply as competing architectures for creating distributed solutions. While the most significant difference between COM and CORBA is their support for different operating system platforms, software developers must realize that each technology has its own strengths that clearly differentiate it from the other. In COM and CORBA(r) Side by Side, Jason Pritchard objectively describes when and how developers should use both technologies--together or separately--to maximize the success of their designs. This book helps software practitioners analyze and transcend their personal biases toward COM or CORBA so that they may objectively seek the best implementation strategy. The author helps you cut through vendor marketing hype by presenting a clear, logical formula to help you choose between the two technologies. In short, COM and CORBA(r) Side by Side is an invaluable resource for making informed, critical decisions about using one or both of these technologies in your next project.
