Our product just simply send HTTP request with message wrapped in XML to
server side and server side listener pick up the message and un-wrap the
message and make relative Object Invokes ( we're using Java/CORBA - can
smoothly plug in COM as well, and the server side message listener can
re-direct message to anywhere that is wired up .... )  - So, I did see any
needs for XML-RPC, what it's fitting in ????????? - our product is
targetting Equity Trading floor - very high data volumes, and so far this
archi. works very well, and every one likes it - for using SOAP, we can just
simply make the message SOAP compatible and that's it, again, I did see any
needs for XML-RPC, what kind of big project we are talking about here
