I'll get this one! ;->
On another mail list they're asking if CORBA is dead.
Study the history of software, nothing ever dies, yet people who for one
reason or another *want* things to die say they're dead.
XML-RPC is alive and well.
SOAP is coming along, but there aren't many interoperable implementations,
and none of them implement all the possibilities. So interoperability is
still a challenge in SOAP-space, where it's trivial in XML-RPC, and done,
So my advice is this, if XML-RPC does what you need to do, use it.
