Just to be pedantic, CORBA is not a language, but a standard. Communication between languages using the standard depends on an IDL-language mapping for the desired language - so in your case it's IDL-VB.


I may be wrong here, but as VB is Microsoft and Microsoft pushed the COM (has changed name and been refined a couple of times) model for distributed computing, you may need a COM-CORBA bridge. (Other CORBA forum denizens, please correct me if I'm over complicating things here).


IONA provide a product called Orbix COMet which might meet your needs.

Hope this helps,

Dermot
