A while back (~May), I contacted both VisiBroker (now Inprise) and Orbix regarding the availability of their ORBs on the /400. Both were extremely evasive. They indicated that they had ORBs that ran or would soon run on the 400 and that someone would get back to me in the next day or two. I kept calling the salespeople but never got a straight answer. I also checked with the Component Broker people (IBM's ORB) who had no interest in the 400 and were the ones who referred me to Inprise and Orbix. The project which generated the inquiries got put on hold and I stopped pestering them. Aside from the functionality that is supposed to be in v4r4, are there ORBs available now for the 400 from either vendor? When is v4r4 due? How firm is the plan to incorporate an ORB into OS/400? Will this be included in the base operating system, as a no-charge option, or as a fee based option? Thanks, Gary THORN Serge (GVA) wrote: > > > Very good question!
