Just a precision to be sure no-one will be misunderstanding this: nothing 
prevents you to use different CORBA ORBs for your different languages. Since all 
ORBs use the same protocols and architecture, they interoperate quite gracefully.

I used once fnorb for Python ( and JacORB for Java 
( and everything worked OK.

But of course, you may get some functions implemented in some ORBs, but not in 
other ones (e.g activation models...)

The OMG site has a good list of ORBs, free or commercial:
