JAVA CORBA across JBuilder8 PC and HP Unix

JAVA CORBA across JBuilder8 PC and HP Unix

I am relatively new to Java (and CORBA) and am trying to write a front end client using JBuilder8 on a PC which makes a call across the network to a server written in Java on a HP Unix box using CORBA ..... and am struggling.

The error I currently get is this :

org.omg.CORBA.BAD_PARAM:   minor code: 0  completed: No
    at shipconsapp.Module1.ShippingHelper.narrow(ShippingHelper.java:39)
    at shipconsapp.Module1.ShippingHelper.narrow(ShippingHelper.java:18)

from the following code snippet:

      Properties props = new Properties();
      String cl_args[] = {""};

      // Set the properties for the ORB Name Service

      // Create and initialize the ORB
      ORB orb = ORB.init(cl_args, props);

      // Get the root naming context
      org.omg.CORBA.Object objRef = orb.resolve_initial_references("NameService");
      NamingContext ncRef = NamingContextHelper.narrow(objRef);

      // Resolve the object reference in naming
      NameComponent nc = new NameComponent("Shipping", "");
      NameComponent[] path = {nc};

      Shipping shipRef = ShippingHelper.narrow(ncRef.resolve(path));

I have removed the debug statements I had but I know it gets as far as the last line which is where the error seems to be generated from.

Am I just being bloody stupid and doing something wrong ???

Anyone able to help a distressed newbie.

sorry, should have added the actual call as well

result = shipRef.processShipCons("123456", "LHR", "FX200", "ANDY");

RE: JAVA CORBA across JBuilder8 PC and HP Unix

Put please in the forum the only ShippingHelper.java line 39 and ShippingHelper.java line 18
