Visigenic (now part of of Borland) and Netscape had Caffeine for handling 
this which appears to headed towards being official.  There are several 
free CORBA ORBs, including a couple of Java ones.  Look in 
comp.object.corba and http://adams.patriot.net/~tvalesky/freecorba.html
and http://linas.org/linux/corba.html

However, I would be really concerned about speed.
