With CORBA, given an identifier, you need to know what it identifies *before* you use it, i.e. you need to know it's a stock quote to know to invoke getQuote(). With the Web, given an identifier, you find out what it as *after* you invoke GET on it. The coordination costs with the latter are *dramatically* lower than with the former. And between untrusted parties, cheap coordination is everything. CORBA didn't succeed over the Internet because it wasn't designed to. MB -- Mark Baker, CTO, Idokorro Mobile.
