Roger,

Actually there are several ORB's providers on the market, IONA, INPRISE,
BEASYS, IBM, etc...

We have selected for our company the INPRISE Visibroker for Java 3.3 product
which in fact is not yet officially announced by IBM which nevertheless
works perfectly on the IFS (as it is 100% Java). You simply install the
product and compile the classes in this environment (with QSHELL).

The Java Applet/Application uses the IIOP classes (or any C++ application)
from the client and accesses the CORBA services on the AS/400. These
services launches classes which accesses any AS/400 resources with the use
of the AS/400 Toolbox on the AS/400. 

You therefore have a pure Presentation logic (Thin client) and can develop
any type of client (even a Visual Basic client if you use a COM/CORBA bridge
like Visual Edge). If you directly use the Toolbox from the client
Applet/Application, you will never have a portable software! Then CORBA can
also be implemented on different platforms and be accessed by the same
application from the client side!

If you want more information look at http://www.inprise.com

IONA also made recently this annoucement :

24th February IONA(r) Technologies Brings Leading Enterprise Middleware to
IBM AS/400e with Orbix(r) Product Family
http://www.iona.com/info/aboutus/pressroom/index.html

Hope it helps

Regards

Where can I learn more about this? I'm quite familar with the AS/400
Toolbox, but its the ORB stuff I wresting with.
