What are the specific questions with interoperability that you're
facing?  I'd recommend that you "just do it" and see if it works.  If
you have any problems please make sure you fill out the appropriate
problem report form (PRF), which is in


or in


in older versions of ACE+TAO.  Make sure to include this information
when asking any questions about ACE+TAO since otherwise we have to
"guess" what version/platform/compiler/options you've using, which is
very error-prone and slows down our responsiveness.  If you don't use
the PRF, therefore, it is less likely that someone from the core
ACE+TAO developer team will be able to answer your question.
Naturally, we encourage and appreciate other members of the ACE+TAO
user community who can respond to questions that they have the answers

Please note, moreover, that the DOC groups at Washington University,
UC Irvine, and Vanderbilt University only provide "best effort"
support for non-sponsors, as described in


Thus, if you need more "predictable" help, I recommend that you
check out


for a list of companies that will provide you with ACE+TAO commercial
