The first implementation of IIOP was a little engine I wrote, which I seem to recall compiled to about 5Kb on an x86. That's client and server side, both -- all you needed to interop with another IIOP engine (a.k.a ORB). And yes, it was faster than any commercial product I remember hearing about, not just smaller than them. I remember noticing when I hit the sweet spot to get have the core engine stay inside that little cache on the 486 CPU ... there's nothing like such an observation for an XML package. I don't recall seeing an XML parser that small, much less one that also embedded the networking support. On the other hand, CORBA vendors also add their own share of glop to the mix, so things tend to even out. - Dave xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
