Is that what web services are about? We have a serious terminological
difference. I thought it was about organizations integrating their
information systems. I'm not trying to be glib. I'm seriously trying to
work out what web services are. SOAP is indeed a sufficient protocol for
saying "execute some code over there." But it is probably the seventh or
eight sufficient protocol in that vein...
