Though RMI is a powerful mechanism for distributing and processing objects in a platform-independent manner, it has one significant drawback—it works only with objects that have been created using Java. Convenient though it might be if Java were the only language used for creating software objects, this simply is not the case in the real world. A more generic approach to the development of distributed systems is offered by CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture), which allows objects written in a variety of programming languages to be accessed by client programs which themselves may be written in a variety of programming languages.
