No, you're not right. Of course, you can put your CORBA server or
inside a dll/lib. However, as in the CORBA world exists more than one
manufacturer of ORBs, you should check your ORB's documentation in this
regard. I know that MICO (www.mico.org) and TAO
(www.cs.wustl.edu/~schmidt/TAO.html) accept dynamic loading of server

You can program it that way, and that's the purpose of the IMR (at the
server level) together with the POA specification (at the object level).

There are many, even freely available. Check for instance
http://adams.patriot.net/~tvalesky/freecorba.html . However, it is not a
requirement that an ORB support both languages: you can use an ORB for a
particular language and other ORB for other language. They are able to

Of course. This is the magic of CORBA: using the functionality
of programming language, platform and OS. You must still know some
interoperatibility issues (such as how to pass object identifiers, IORs,
initialization services, etc.)
