   RE: [xml-dev] Traditional RPC

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

My theory of proper choice is it depends on who 
is choosing and their contexts.   My theory about 
the WSIO is that code is shipping and they are commissioned 
to make it "work properly".  These are related 
but not the same.

1.  MS, IBM, et al are choosing UDDI/SOAP.  Why?  
They haven't said.  They say it works.

2.  A company chooses a toolkit based on many 
issues.  One is a lot of integratible applications 
and particularly if the cost of integrating these 
is low because the complexities are hidden.

3.  I may not get a choice.  My company chooses. 
I'm here trying to understand these choices.

"Work properly" seems desirable.  So far, 
no one has stepped up to prove that UDDI/SOAP 
won't work properly.  And if I understand 
the implications of using HTTP/URI pure it will 
be more work to achieve the same results as 
the transactions become complex.  You say it 
will open up security holes, won't scale, etc. 
I say, keep it coarse grained and it can work 
well because the scale issue is less important. 
As to security, what about WS-Signature which 
the W3C just released?

It's just a theory. 

1. My theory is that protocols will get chosen because they work

2. Your theory is that they will get chosen because they ship with MSDN
and other vendor-backed distributions.

3. Dave's seems to be that they will get chosen because they are popular
with end-users and surrounded by hype and excitement.

Obviously I subscribe to my theory.
