Though I'm the one that brought CORBA into the discussion, I think
that a better comparison would probably be XMI, since CORBA is a
protocol rather than a format.

RDF is simpler and less rigidly defined than XMI, and it is nicely
extensible -- that makes it much more suitable, say, for distributing
data in the decentralized, undisciplined environment of the Web, and
much less suitable, say, for direct Java-to-C++ communication in a
well-defined system with a single architecture.


All the best,


David
