I'm amazed to hear that. You're a corporate developer and your
corporation has not deployed a single web client app. Not bug tracking.
Not content management. Not issue tracking. Not expense report

How can the two halves of your sentence be reconciled? If XML can
emulate CORBA then it by definition does not impose a communication
model that is less sophisticated than CORBA.
