Yes ... but ... why?

If you've got CORBA/RMI/DCOM clients and servers on both ends 
why would you want to take a detour via XML over HTTP (other 
than for firewall traversal). The generated XML would be about 
as illuminating (and as helpful for interoperation) as running
a binary executable through a disassembler.

I think this is a case of horses for courses ... both XML over
HTTP and CORBA/RMI/DCOM have useful jobs to do, but I don't
think either can make the other redundant.
