Jini Service as a CORBA Service
We have looked at making CORBA objects into Jini services. Is it possible to go the other way, and make a Jini service appear as a CORBA object in a CORBA federation? Well, it should be. Just as there is a mapping from CORBA IDL to Java, there is also a mapping of a suitable subset of Java into CORBA IDL. Therefore, a Jini service interface can be written as a CORBA interface. A Jini client could then be written as the implementation of a CORBA server to this IDL.
At present, with a paucity of Jini services, it does not seem worthwhile to explore this in detail. This may change in the future, though.
