RE: CORBA vs. XML (was: Re: XML.COM: How I Learned to Love daBo mb)
> From: Ruslan Shevchenko [mailto:Ruslan@S...] <snip/> > What's bad in XML/SOAP - that it's simple. I disagree that this is a liability of SOAP. Personally, I think it has been demonstrated over and over again that complex, monolithic specs that try to solve every problem on the planet usually fail. Accusing SOAP of being limited due to its simplicity is like saying that the foundation of a house is too simple to be used for human habitation. That misses the point entirely. Any seasoned software engineer knows the value of modular, layered architectures. I fail to see why it is so controversial to approach protocol specifications in the same manner. SOAP is suitable as a substrate for protocols that give you all the complexity you want (check out ebXML as one example), but is equally suitable for the simple cases that don't need additional complexity.
