This paper reports on a work-in-progress aimed at designing and deploying a CORBA Commodity Gird (CoG) Kit. The overall goal of this project is to explore how to enable the development of advanced Grid applications while adhering to state-of-the-art software engineering practices and reusing existing Grid infrastructure. As part of this activity, we are currently investigating how CORBA can be used to support this software engineering task. In this paper, we outline the design of a CORBA Commodity Grid Kit that will provide a software development framework for building a CORBA \"Grid domain.\" We also present our current experiences in developing a prototype CORBA CoG Kit that provides access to the Globus toolkit functionality to support Grid development.
