CORBA Distributed Objects: Using Orbix, Sean Baker, Addison-Wesley, 1997. This book is very good at getting at the depths of CORBA development that other books tend to gloss over.

Client/Server Programming with Java and CORBA, Second Edition, Robert Orfali, Dan Harkey, John Wiley & Sons, 1998. This is one of the “Martian” books and is over 800 pages of example code for getting up and running with CORBA and Java.

Java Programming with Corba, Andreas Vogel, Keith Duddy, John Wiley & Sons, 1998. A good introduction to the Java and Corba communication.

Programming with VisiBroker, Doug Pedrick, ed., John Wiley & Sons, 1998. A good introduction to VisiBroker and Java.

Corba Fundamentals and Programming, Jon Siegel, John Wiley & Sons, 1996. The classic introduction to CORBA. Still quite good in covering the basics.

Mico is Corba: A Corba 2.0 Compliant Implementation, Arno Puder, Morgan Kaufman, 1998. This book/CD combo provides the free Mico CORBA ORB, a true blue CORBA implementation that stresses standards adherence over speed.

The Essential Corba: Systems Integration Using Distributed Objects, Thomas Mowbray and Ron Zahavi, John Wiley & Sons, 1995. A very good, complete introduction to distributed programming and CORBA. Aimed more at the manager/architect than the developer in the trenches.
