Great to see someone having fun and getting into SOAP
I understand the need to think about legacy applications and that companies must keep their customers happy. So if customers want to use Web Services technologies in order to build their object-oriented systems, why not? Let’s encourage them (e.g., CORBA binding to WSDL). I don’t want to restart the old argument on why WSDL is not yet another object IDL (post 1, post 2, post 3) but it seems that we are treating it as such. I think we are forgetting the importance of SOAP, the importance of the message. The Indigo people get it.
So… I would like to start a campaign for the promotion of SOAP, the “love the message campaign” or “love SOAP campaign”. Here’s a ribbon to go with it. What do you think? Can we make this happen? Can we make people believers? Spread the word!!!
