> 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?
<non-plug>Another aspect is whether much simpler web-services architectures
would be useful. The UDDI/SOAP/WSDL/XML Schemas Web Services
are aimed at particular kinds of commercial services, and may not be the
most straightforward approach for environments where you want to
expose existing applications as friendly services for inhouse use.</non-plug>

peer-to-peer infrastructures (in our case, using Sun's JXTA) can simplify web
services for publishing and information systems, please come along to our booth.</plug>
