The Common Object Request Brokser Architecture (CORBA) is a specification that enables distributed software components to work together regardless of the programming language used to develop them, the computer platform they run on, or the computer networks they use. Java IDL is a set of packages and tools that enables you to create CORBA-compliant software in Java. Java IDL is part of the core Java2 (JDK 1.2) runtime environment. Therefore, you know that your CORBA-compliant JavaBeans components can run on any Java platform.
