I don't think so -- I have seen about one project per year since 2006 completely screwed up by the see-next-week's-model, "haute software" culture of the SOAP hype machine. None of those projects is yet (to my knowledge) realizing any return on their investment in SOAP. > Sticking with just SOAP (no wsdl, no uddi, no xml schema) > you can make services as simple as xml-rpc. At which point, you might as well just *use* XML-RPC: without "tool support" (which is what those technologies promise), you can't pretend to interoperate with the other suds. > Everything beyond standard soap tries to give it an infinite amount of > power that is best compared to the extremely large number of corba > specifications. I've played a bit over the weekend with ICE, Michi Henning's fork / cleanup of CORBA (http > Whether or not this should live in the core is mostly a subjective > argument to which I have no opinion on. Given the extensibility of *both* Zope2 and Zope3, I can see no benefit to putting it in the core, over defining it in an add-on: at least that way, folks who need to track one of the *different* sets of semantics won't be fooled into thinking the core already provides it: instead, they can stumble over the extension(s), and direct their complaints to *those* maintainers, instead of to us. ;) Tres. - -- =================================================================== Tres Seaver +1 540-429-0999 [EMAIL PROTECTED] Palladion Software "Excellence by Design" http://palladion.com -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v18.104.22.168 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iD8DBQFFomky+gerLs4ltQ4RAsjcAJ47yHbZX45shjYyRlSKl4QFrelqfwCgj50y bwa2gmIxDwS+qMCDhc4zNeA= =p2zd -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ Zope3-dev mailing list Zope3email@example.com Unsub: http://mail.zope.org/mailman/options/zope3-dev/archive%40mail-archive.com
