this.serverVO = serverVO;
String arg[] = { "-ORBInitialHost", serverVO.getServerIP(),
"-ORBInitialPort", String.valueOf(serverVO.getServerPort()),
"-ORBGIOPVersion", "1.1" };
orb = ORB.init(arg, null);
System.out.println("Initialization Device handle using IOR:"+serverVO.getDcmIOR());
obj = orb.string_to_object(serverVO.getDcmIOR().trim());
deviceControlImpl = DeviceControlHelper.narrow(obj);
System.out.println(className+":CORBAService:"+"DeviceControl handle initialized successfully......");



Getting below exception while trying to access ORB.init as bolded above. LINUX platform

I got the solution for this. The problem was I was compiling it in JDK 1.6 but running it in JRE1.4. This happenned because in linux by default "java" command was pointing to jdk1.4 path.

I figured out that by typing in "java -version" which gave 1.4 version and then executed java by prefixing path which in my case happens to be /usr/jdk1.6_014/bin/java
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
