This tutorial motivates the need for, and discusses the principles of, object-oriented distribution middleware. We will give an overview how these principles are supported by the Object Management Group's Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA), Microsoft's Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) and Java's Remote Method Invocation (RMI). We will discuss common design problems that occur when building applications using distributed objects and present techniques for their solution.
