Subject Re: Questions about CORBA

If it comes down to fixing OpenORB or writing our own ORB, I think  
writing our own will be faster.  OpenORB is quite difficult to  
understand and was written before many modern concepts like IoC were  
introduced.  The biggest problem this the current OpenORB codebase is  
that it doesn't properly implement IIOP so it cant talk to any other  
ORBs (and it is difficult to find the code to fix).  Anyway, I say we  
stick with the sun orb until something better comes along.
