That's one big, important article in an important place.  Okay fine,
news.com spends too much time covering the stock market.  Still, a lot of
people currently working with COM, CORBA, and EJB might run into it and
start wondering if there isn't an easier way to deal with messaging.

I can't say this kind of program-to-program communication is what drew me
in to XML (or keeps me here), but it's pretty impressive stuff.  I don't
think XML messaging over HTTP is the answer to all problems or necessarily
a replacement for CORBA, COM, and EJB, but it's a great answer for a large
number of tasks.

Long live HTTP!  I guess worse really is better!
