The acronym CORBA stands for Common Object Request Broker Architecture. Basically it is a way of distributing application objects. Using Interface Definition Language (IDL ) an interface is generated for these objects. An Object Request Broker ( ORB ) handles requests for these objects via the interface.
That is a pretty high level explanation I think. I hope it helps some. I know from reading this board that others here have much more in depth knowledge.
