The Java language environment, World Wide Web, and Common Object Request Broker Architecture are complementary software technologies, which when used together provide a powerful set of tools for developing and deploying multi-user distributed applications. We describe an approach to building reasonably sophisticated and easy-to-use client software as WWW-downloadable Java applets, which use CORBA to interact effectively with remote server software and thus coordinate and control access to a set of shared resources. We used this approach to reimplement a portion of an existing multi-user distributed application that had been built using the WWW Common Gateway Interface (CGI), then evaluated the differences between the two approaches. We found our method of combining Java applets and CORBA not only practical but in many ways superior to the widely used CGI approach, as well as to a conventional CORBA approach that does not exploit the WWW
