These pages about different languages / apis / best practices were mostly jotted down quckily and rarely corrected afterwards.
The languages / apis / best practices may have changed over time (e.g. the facebook api being a prime example), so what was documented as a good way to do something at the time might be outdated when you read it (some pages here are over 15 years old).
Just as a reminder.

Summary of CORBA Design Patterns

Notes about Corba Design Patterns

CORBA Design Patterns by Thomas J. Mowbray, Raphael C. Malveau

This book at Amazon.co.uk

I usually scribble down some notes while I read books like this, will add them here, hopefully doing some comments about the patterns further ahead:

CORBA is a standard for distributed computing. Corba simplifies heterogeneous distributed computing, in a network there can be many types of computers and software packages. Corba Interface Definition Language (IDL) is an standard for creating software interfaces. IDL is language- and platform-independet.
Design patterns offer a concise, efficient way to convey expert software concepts, particularly architectural concepts.
Corba simplifies distributed systems by having an object-oriented paradigm that hides all differences between programming languages, operating systems, and process locations. That way diverse types of applications can interoperate at the same level, hiding implementation details and supporting reuse.
