> I am a new user of TAO.

Great, welcome!  Since you're using OCI's version of TAO I recommend
sending your questions to taosupport at ociweb.com since they provide
excellent commercial support for their releases of TAO.  Naturally, we
encourage and appreciate other members of the ACE+TAO user community who
can respond to questions about the OCI release if they have the answers.

You may also want to consider upgrading to ACE+TAO+CIAO x.6 (i.e., ACE
5.6, TAO 1.6, and CIAO 0.6), which you can download from


under the heading: "Latest Beta Kit".

The DOC groups at Washington University, UC Irvine, and Vanderbilt
University only provide "best effort" support for non-sponsors for the
latest release, as described in


Thus, if you need more "predictable" help for earlier versions of
ACE+TAO, I recommend that you check out


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