Is Java IDL the right choice to build a CORBA based server?
Sun mentioned Java IDL is ideal to build a CORBA client.
Our specific needs may include millions of concurrant calls per day. Will the free stuff, tnameserv and Java IDL robust enough to handle this task?
Another question is, as many of you may have noticed, tnameserv does uas a lot of ports. How can I control it?
Thanks in advance.

My question is, if you are using Java on both the client and Server why on earth are you using CORBA anyway? Use EJB's instead. All the RMI-IIOP stuff in a better framework...

Sorry Kyle. We are running the server on the mainframe. Don't have WebSphere installed on the mainframe yet. CORBA is selected becuase our clients are both Java based and C++ based.

I believe that you have basically no chance of getting Java IDL to run on the mainframe JVM. I'm pretty sure you are going to have to go with WebSphere whether you like it or not since it's the only mainframe CORBA solution I know of...

Hi Kyle:
As a matter of fact, our Java IDL application is running on the IBM OS/390 (USS) mainframe. Since we are expecting large volume calls form the clients, my question is if the free version Java/IDL bundled in JDK will handle the job.
Thanks
