i'm a new beginner of CORBA, i want to implement a client-server based with CORBA, and i decided to use Java for the Client and C++ for the server ?? can i achieve that ??

which ORB is recomened to install, since i am uisng windows 98 operating system.

thank you very much.  

RE: ORB products

Yes, you can achieve this.  With CORBA, you can have a Java front-end and a C++ server-side implementation, or vice versa (although I'm not sure why you'd want to have a Java server-side implementation and use C++ for your client-side code, but I guess anything's possible.)  My company's app uses Java for the client because it is convenient for our web-based environment (we use applets for the GUI interface).  We have a CORBA middle tier and then C++ classes that interact with the database.  The CORBA middle tier accepts requests from the client side for data, passes the requests to the C++ code, then returns the results back to the client.

As for recommendations for ORB vendors, I'm afraid I have limited experience with specific vendors so I can't really make any recommendations.  Good luck.
