   RE: RE: [xml-dev] lots of WS reading material

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I'm not trying to enforce one or the other to end 
the fracas, Mike.  The fracas is irrelevant except 
insofar as it is beginning to rob the TAG of credibility 
to the W3C membership that is fielding SOAP systems.

What I'm saying is precisely this: web services, SOAP, 
etc., can go right on doing what they are doing and 
RESTies can go on RESTing.  As Fyrstyk said, use each  
where applicable.  Choice, right?

There is no "full potential of the Web" until it 
is retired.  When that happens, if we keep to 
sound principles, XML will be there to help us 
get the information onto the new system unless 
one side or the other manages to introduce system 
architecture dependencies to a system independent

But the CLEARLY WRONG answer, either for 19th century physics or for
the 21st century internet, would be to try to enforce one
view or the other in the name of stopping a contentious fracas.

We obviously can't stop work until we understand the "transcendent
thingie" with both SOAP and RPC aspects, and we can't afford to
answer the question by fiat. Figuring out when one works better
than the other seems like the right approach to me ... while searching
for transcendent thingie enlightenment in our spare time.
