It's a good article. I'd like to correct a common myth about CORBA,
though. The article says:

  """
  Compared to other distributed programming tools like DCOM or CORBA
  (or, more properly, the IIOP which transports CORBA,) SOAP is

    * platform-neutral,
    * computing language-independent, and
    * Unicode-ready.
  """

CORBA's IIOP _is_ platform-neutral, language independent, and Unicode
ready.

Cheers,

Duncan.
