  author={Fritz Solms and Willi-Hans Steeb},
The object-oriented middleware standard, CORBA, is a very useful platform for distributed computing, and in particular for sharing a workload among a collection of possibly polymorphic computers. CORBA has, however, received relatively little attention from the scientific computing community. In this article we demonstrate how CORBA and Java can be used to implement a distributed multi-dimensional Monte Carlo integration algorithm which runs on the internet.
