if this is a corba service that runs in a thread started by the orb,  
and doesn't go through any j2ee components, I'm not sure you will be  
able to bind the orb under java:comp even in 1.2/2.0.  In 1.2  you'll  
be able to write some extra code to bind an orb anywhere you want in  
global jndi, but I'm not sure whether you can bind into the  
"java:comp" context since that is pretty heavily specified for use by  
j2ee components.  It might work, I don't know.  In 2.0 this will be  
at least as possible and the orb may be pre-bound (although AFAIK  
that isn't implemented yet)

If the thread this runs on went through a j2ee component before  
getting to your code, there should be an orb bound to java:comp/ORB  
already so long as the orb module is actually running.  We've  
generally shipped with the orb turned off and turn it on when we  
detect an app using corba transport for ejbs.  So one thing you want  
to do is look in var/config/config.xml or the admin console and see  
if its on.  In 1.2/2.0 I think the module is called  
org.apache.geronimo.configs.corba-yoko/${version}/car, and in 1.1.1  
probably geronimo/openejb-corba-sun/1.1.1/car.

Hope this helps,  feel free to ask more.
