I'm a bit confused as to when you should use
IDL and RMI/IIOP.
My understanding is that:
you should use Java IDL when you wish to access a CORBA server
you should use RMI/IIOP in an
application server when you wish to service requests froma CORBA server.
Is this correct? Can't RMI/IIOP access a CORBA server as well?
Any cleaing up of the distinction between Java IDL and RMI/IIOP would be greatly appreciated.

I too had the same problem. The easiest way to know which to use is
If you need to communicate with a CORBA
from Java or vice versa then you use RMI-IIOP
If you want to access CORBA
through Java use Java-IDL.
Hope this helps.
