There's no built-in CORBA client/server support with the UN*X versions of LabVIEW, and I'm pretty sure that CORBA support is not high on the list of features for the developers to add. I've never seen much evidence (aside from very occasional inquiries such as yours) that there's a lot of demand out there.
What's the application that you want to communicate with? Are there other communication methods (File I/O, TCP/IP) that might be suitable?
I'm also interested in CORBA - LabVIEW communication. I have been working with LabVIEW for many years. Right now I'm starting to work in a project where CORBA is used for inter-process communication. It would be very nice if I could use LabVIEW to communicate with these other processes through CORBA.

I'm novice in CORBA and just learning it's concept, but may be my ideas are not a so stupid.
1.NI has DataSocket JavaBean add-on for Measurement Studio. These beans will allow you to establish DataSocket communication between Java applet/EJB etc and LabVIEW. The rest is as usually in any Java CORBBA platform.
2. There is tools (java ones), that makes ActiveX from Java beans. The rest is simple.

If anybody is reading this ancient thread, you should seriously consider looking into Google's Protobuf and gRPC rather than Corba/IDL. I have seen that some people have created some LabVIEW tools for protobuf messaging. (Sorry this is non-specific)
