The rise and fall of CORBA ( and what we can learn)

mig21 in Yet Another Programming Weblog posts a link to the article,The Rise and Fall of CORBA by Michi Henning. He extracts the following conclusions:

  • Standards bodies must make solid rules to standardise best practices.

  • No standard should be approved without a reference implementation.

  • No standard should be approved before being used in some implementations of reasonable complexity.

  • Free and open source software follows Darwinian selection so more readily satisfies the above rules.

  • To create quality software, the ability to say, “No,” is more important than the ability to say, “Yes.”
