Last 2 days i was facing a problem with CORBA environment, as the client was providing us incorrect corba names. Running the application and load everything to get a not found error was a big deal for me (lazy i am ).

so i have developed a very small program that checks the corba name in the corba Naming service.

the usage of the program is as the following:

Usage: java -jar corbaPing.jar host port namingService contextPath

Example: java -jar corbaPing.jar 192.168.122 20000 NameService all/product/bundle/manager

if the there is something registered in the provided context path, you will get the IOR for this reference. or you got an error for the problem you face.

you can download the jar from this URL: http://www.nile-sys.com/tools/corba/corbaPing.jar

i wish this small tool could make your life easier.
