This is true, and the 2.1 CORBA IDL for Parlay compiles almost perfectly
with IC (there is a single shadowed include which generates an error)

Yes, OTP provides all that TelORB provides except:

* Full hardware and software 24*7 call out support via the local Ericsson
support agencies.

* c7 INAP, CAMEL Interfaces kept fully up to date with all the latest
changes in the standards.

* It seems to guarantee that if one service invocation goes haywire or
crashes this cannot affect any other invocations (even endless loop
scenarios are catered for with a max lifetime parameter).

I guess these are all pretty specific issues to my small application area
but they are certainly important.

It would be nice to see Erlang ported though :-)

Anyway I've already said too much I'm sure.
