Re: Massive Cross-Post: The State of XML-RPC, April 2001

If you have XML messaging over http, why do you need
anything else?  Here is the XML I expect, here's the
XML I'm going to return, and here is the
URL.  I love how software engineers like to make
tools instead of solve real problems.  Are we expected
to suspend disbelief and think these tools are bug-free
and have no overhead?

You're going to save me time and make the world
inter-operate.  Yeah right.  I didn't believe it when the
CORBA and COM people said it and I don't
believe it from the XML people either.

The world will always be chaos, get used to it.

Personally, I'll take XML-RPC for the tasks it performs.  If I want
something more sophisticated, I'll go straight to XML messaging over HTTP,
and steer clear of SOAP entirely.
