JBoss 3.2.3 certainly does not have the latest JacORB version. I do not remember what version 3.2.3 is packaged with, but I have built a MBean for use in exactly this situation. It reflectively loads the JacORB version class, and reports the information that it contains. I can e-mail it to you if you like.
Maybe I should create an MBean that does this for every 3rd party tool/library (where possible), and maybe I should post it on the Wiki?
You can update the version of JacORB by replacing jacorb.jar in your server configuration's lib directory.
What issue specifically are you trying to solve by incorporating the latest version of JacORB, and are you sure this will solve your problem?
That sounds quite a useful MBean.
I have a web server application that is a client of a CORBA server on another host. If the CORBA server is stopped and restarted, when my client attempts to connect again a message is logged by JacORB saying it found a connection. However, this appears to be the previous connection that is now dead.

Then a request to this server just hangs.
I found a reference to something similair looking through the JacORB archives and it seemed to have been addressed in version 2.1.
