I used CORBA successfully in Java, Unix and Windows environment. Still remember the IDL and simplicity of the naming service from Visibroker. Wish that modern tools would match them soon.

I didn’t write “nontrivial CORBA applications”. I used CORBA as a tool to connect distributed services -- similar to modern ESB. Together with service coordination (via a workflow tool) and implementation of services in dynamic language (Jython) this worked fine. Versioning was externalised.

Thanks,
AS
