If you are running over Neo, I would suggest you reconsider your option rather than investing more time on solving the problem, Sun just dropped its middleware product. Se article at:

http://www.sun.com/sunworldonline/swol-11-1997/swol-11-neo.html

Re. your specific problem, If your running the server, Neo does not correctly compile the skeleton code for any server, does a fairly good job with the client stubs though.

Actualy, Visibroker is the only Java ORB that can currently be deployed on servers and that supports both SSL and HTTP tunneling for firewall's. Its one draw back is that the developer version is rather expensive for experimenting and its trial version is limited to 2 weeks.

At any rate, Visibroker (http://www.visigenic.com) is currently the only good solution to your problem.

There are a couple of freeware ORB's on the net but all of them are lacking in some key feature or other, such as incomplete IDL support, no support for IIOP no naming service or other such lacks that make working with them pretty usless.

I have exactly the same config. as you...and also had problems to run the examples. I have found the solution here:

http://www.sun.com/solaris/java-idl/qna.html

"The idltojava compiler, by default, uses a C/C++ preprocessor. If you have one and want to leave this flag on (default), make certain the location of your preprocessor (typically the bin directory of whatever development environment you are using) is in your PATH before invoking idltojava. If you don't have a preprocessor, or don't want to use it, use:

-fno-cpp

on the command line when invoking idltojava."

In my case, this works fine:

idltojava -fno-cpp -fclient -fserver hello.idl
