The book targets developers who use MICO to develop distributed applications based on CORBA. It explains the installation process of MICO as well as the usage of MICO based on several examples. A tutorial walks through a step-by-step procedure that shows how to implement a simple client/server application based on MICO. Later chapters explain implementation-specific details of MICO.

Table of Contents: (1) Introduction, (2) Installation, (3) CORBA Tutorial, (4) MICO Implementation Overview, (5) C++ Language Mapping, (6) Interoperability, (7) Naming Service, (8) Interface Repository, (9) License, (A) Sample Applications, (B) Frequently Asked Questions.

Middleware für verteilte Systeme (in German)

"Middleware für verteilte Systeme" (in German)
Arno Puder and Kay Römer
275 pages
ISBN: 3-932588-03-7

This book discusses the internal architecture of a CORBA-based distribution platform. The design and architecture of a middleware platform are explained from two different point-of-views: that of an application programmer (who uses the middleware) and that of a system programmer (who implements the middleware). MICO is used as a case study to explain the principles of a micro-kernel architecture. This book also serves as a reference manual for the internal details of MICO.

Table of Contents: (1) Einleitung, (2) Grundlagen, (3) Einführung in CORBA, (4) µORB, (5) Design des ORB, (6) Interoperabilität, (7) Objektadapter, (8) Aufrufadapter, (9) IDL-Compiler, (A) Weg eines Operationsaufrufs durch den ORB, (B) Einbindung eines neuen Aufrufadapters, (C) Einbindung eines neuen Objektadapters, (D) Einbindung eines neuen Transportmechanismus, (E) Struktur des generierten Programmkodes, (F) CORBA Standard, (G) Beispielanwendung.
