While Dublin-based company Iona Technologies Ltd may appear to be taking more of a backseat role in driving the adoption Corba- based object technology at the moment than more glamorous concerns such as Roger Sippl’s Visigenic Inc, but it’s the Irish company that’s got the big customers. In the US, airplane manufacturer Boeing is re-engineering its manufacturing process and is using Ioba’s Orbix object request broker as one of the key software components of the transition. Already deployed to some 5,000 users, Boeing’s now embarking on the second phase of its re-engineering work and will use Orbix to integrate multiple third party applications, including Baan, Oracle and SDRC, which together handle information about some three million airplane parts the company uses. After adding an integrated messaging layer, Boeing will roll Orbix out in a production environment that supports up to 9,000 concurrent users.
