OCI's TAO University Out-Reach Program

TAO can be an invaluable educational resource. It is open source with zero cost licensing and is therefore easily deployed around the campus. If you are engaged in R & D activities it is easier to deliver software including CORBA using TAO because of its open source license model. It employs leading edge software techniques and strategies, and runs across a wide enough variety of platforms to satisfy just about any Computer Science, EE, or IS department, whether it is being used for teaching or research.

CORBA is an open middleware standard essential for building distributed OO systems. TAO enables students to experience a serious, industrial strength implementation of CORBA. Experience that will count for something when building tomorrow's even more demanding infrastructure.

OCI wishes to make it easier to use CORBA in a university environment by giving low cost access to those commercial products it offers supporting TAO, the open source ORB.
