Try to find where your classpath on the unix is. Then look into the archives whether the CORBA supoort is there. If not, you can always install another a pure Java orb, for example Orbacus or JacORB (search for the URLs with yahoo.)

hey there was some problem with the classpath and that is done but again i am in differnt mode. When i tested this program on windows it is working fine
but on linux it is initializing orb correctly

code is something like this

org.omg.CORBA.Object objRef = orb.resolve_initial_references("NameService");
                              NamingContext ncRef = NamingContextHelper.narrow(objRef);
                              NamingContext ncRef1 = NamingContextHelper.narrow(objRef);

NameComponent nc = new NameComponent("Hello","");
                                    NameComponent nc1 = new NameComponent("Bye","");
                                    NameComponent path[] = {nc};
NameComponent path1[] = {nc1};

till here it is working fine but this line is giving error

 Hello helloRef = HelloHelper.narrow(ncRef.resolve(path));

is there some problem with the idl mapping on windows and linux

thanx

Hi, nikki_agarwal. It`s to configure your java 1.2 environment in Unix (C Shell). Try it:

setenv CLASSPATH .:jdk1.2.2/jre/lib/rt.jar:$CLASSPATH

To make this setting permenent, you'd typically put this statement in your ".cshrc" file.

Bye... :)

What does it mean "not working fine"?

Exception? may be the ncRef is null? This means the Naming context hasn't been found correctly.

Did you specify on which machine the Naming service is?
org.omg.CORBA.Object objRef = orb.resolve_initial_references("NameService");

Check it for null.

Cheers,

Check:

  1.- Check that your pc have its corresponding ip address.
  2.- U have installed TCP/IP protocol (needed by CORBA IIOP).
  3.- Your server starts ok (not your nemeserver), and it runs the name component "Hello".

I see you yous an applet. You have to make sure that the naming server and the orb run on the same machine where the web server is running. Unsigned applet runs in the secure environment of the browser and is not allowed to communicate with hosts different than the host of origin. Thus opening a socket (the orb code does that) is restricted to certified applet code.

Cheers,
  Nik

I believe the applet runs well on your local NT machine, doesn't it?
Some orbs like orbix support HTTP tunneling for the connection support.

My personal opinion is, that putting CORBA connectivity in an applet is a design error. Applets are just front end, and even a sophisticated application can be split in a backend, that probably communicates with other remote objects with CORBA, and front end that is HTTP, or applet using server side scripting (or servlets).

Another problem with CORBa in an applet are the corporate firewalls that have only a gateway for the http protocol. Your applet will never pass through even if it is signed.

I suggest you reconsider the usage of CORBa in an applet seriously.

Cheers,
  Nik

ok Nik not hey(just kidding)
it is true that this is in applet but i am also trying from the application which runs on windows machine and tnameserv and server runs on linux.
every things work fine if i port this application on windows NT(server and tnameserv) but not on linux
it prints the error on console like this

Another idea, on the linux, examine the listening sockets, on the NT as well, using netstat. If the expected listening sockets are not there this means the orb is not properly configured.

Also try running the Linux process with 'nohup java blablabla'.

Hmm, I had a similar problem some time ago. The CORBA connection from our Solaris to the NT serves worked, however the other way around didn't. This does not help you much as my solution was to upgrade the orb to another version where this problem was not present.

To narrow further the problem whether it is a no connection at all or a non-bidirectional connection, you can run your applicaitons with exactly the opposite set-up. I believe it was the client on the NT and the server object on the + orb + NS on the linux. Now try it client on linux, server on NT.

More ideas:

May be the linux uses the ports of the orb for something else.
Try changing the initial port (on both machines).

I think I'm lost :-) Too many comments about computers that I cannot touch.

I think, your orb is misconfigured on one of the machines. Anyway, try changing (on each machine) the default orb ports to something like 5333, to see whether this is the problem in the Linux.

I do not know exactly what 'nohup' is, but I do know that it helps sometimes on server processes, especially listening applications. nohup makes the application ignore 'hang-up' signals (if it already hasn't ignored them). In some cases, the kernel of the UNIX is configured to sent these on every process, just in case :-)

So, if you use the following line to start a java app in UNIX:
"java -cp /csad/casd/cas:/casc/casd ORBMainClass"
it shoudl become
"nohup java -cp /csad/casd/cas:/casc/casd ORBMainClass"

Try it out and tell me.

Cheers,
  Nik
