Corba implementation for Borland C++ 5.0

Does anyone know of a Corba implementation that is compatible with Borland C++ 5.0?

I need this to be able to make an old app that is programmed using BC5.0 (using OWL, so switching to a newer Borland or MS compiler is not easy...), communicate with a Corba server. Orbix' IDL compiler outputs class definitions that contain macro expansions that are too long for BC. It *might* be possible to edit these files afterwards and make it compile correctly, but I don't think that would be a good solution (the IDL-files are constantly changing, we need to be able to recompile on the fly).

So far the only solution has been to create a DLL in MSVC and call that from the Borland app. This again has launched a whole new array of problems at us.

Suggestions anyone?

I think BC lets you specify the maximemu length of identifiers somewhere in the its (project) settings.
Another method might be to compile through makefiles with a newer BC command line compiler using the 'old' OWL library

Unfortunately that didn't do the trick ... It seems like we'll have to stick to the DLL-route, although that is a poor solution.

And recompiling the entire OWL source on the new compiler?

Thanks for helping. I've more or less given up on getting a "clean" solution to this problem, but using a newer compiler that is (hopefully) also capable of handling OWL could be it (the MSVC DLL is working now, and that makes leaving the whole issue for later kind of tempting...).
