You might want to have a look on IONA's OrbixWeb, wich is a CORBA middleware implementation for Java. It integrates very well with Symantec Cafe.

I'll start with a comment on OrbixWeb.  It is a very good product, but so far only supports JDK 1.1.5.  If you are looking for a true CASE tool that can generate the SHELL code, try Rational Rose for Java.  Another suggestion, for lightweight clients is JSDK 2.0 (servlets).  You can still implement OrbixWeb for any external interface to some business objects, but servlets are very fast and free!  With a servlet your client can remain pure HTML while all your business and db logic remains on the web server.
