CORBA is a more mature technology, SOAP is fairly new. Both are complex, but SOAP may be simplier. I am fortunate in that I use Sybase EAServer which hides the complexity of setting up the plumbing to enable CORBA to work. I don't know which one is faster from real experiance; but I would venture a guess that it isn't SOAP because it has the overhead of wrapping a RPC in an XML document to send its request across the network. Your milage may vary. But on the other hand, it is easier to forward SOAP requests thru network firewalls than to setup security access for CORBA objects.

hi, i odnt remember where but i read: SOAP uses HTTP. So any Firewall configured for HTTP will also let pass SOAP calls. for now. firewall vendors will come up with solutions to block SOAP for security reasons. then, from the firewall view, SOAP and CORBA are the same.
