Yes soon there will be. Im working on XIOP which is XML-RPC using OMG Corba
as base.   Currently Im in the middle of writing on an open source web site but
its not
yet ready for prime time.

But since XML-RPC is a hot topic nowadays I though I would come out of the dark
and start to discuss this particular version of XML+HTTP=RPC.

Ive just put out a document describing a few points regarding XIOP with a
showing a number of XIOP uses cases.

There is also an example file showing how messages "MAY" look, this before the
have reached a stable state.

The XIOP is indented to be an open source project so anyone is invited to
Currently Ill answer private email but later in Mars Ill open a mailing list for
interested parties.
Actually there is already one set up but I want to make the web site and
documentation more
readable before its time to go public.
