Perhaps for service lookup in web > service registries? What drew me to Linda almost 20 years ago was the simple idea of using indirection to coordinate parallel programs. With advent of Internet, Linda is finding new application: coordination of distributed processes. The concept of tuple space has been reinterpreted in context of XML so that a tuple is an XML document with some aspects of the document used as tuple data and rest as payload. While XML-based Linda service network can be used for SOAP service lookup, I would go one step further so that SOAP invocations and results become tuples, thus removing the need for SOAP consumers to find providers entirely: you send SOAP invocation to Linda and wait for result to 'bubble' without being concerned about who provided the service (billing layer will of course have to exists for commercial services). Throw Linda, XML, and P2P in together and you end up with something more potent than sum of all the alphabets. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to All, Don Park Docuverse
