   Web Services -- The City of Jericho?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hey all:


i have read yet another article (http://www.vnunet.com/News/1137043) on Web services, and to be honest, i do not know what to think about it anymore.  For a hot minute, i was under the impression that we were making good head-way with this technology, but now i am not so convinced anymore.

So, are Web services the city of Jericho, hiding behind a great wall awaiting a 'joshua' to lead the charge in breaking it down?  What is the argument (at this point) for Web services?  What is the main hinderance(s) (XML, UDDI, SOAP, etc.)?  Any opinions?
