CORBA Program Development, Part 3

A look at CORBA implementations in Java to provide interoperability between platforms.
Conclusion

In these three articles, we have attempted to introduce you to CORBA programming on Linux. Linux is a robust platform for developing CORBA applications, and the CORBA is quite versatile in terms of its capabilities, services, platform independence and language independence. We hope these articles have spurred your interest in both CORBA and Linux and wish you success in exploring these issues more fully on your own. For those who wish to learn more, visit the Free CORBA Page at adams.patriot.net/~tvalesky/freecorba.html. It has continued to grow in terms of subject matter as well as quality, including some information on the CORBA implementation in Java 2.

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
