Corba implementation for Borland C++ 5.0
Posted on 2000-03-20
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.
