We currently use Corba calls to communicate from our Java web services to other servers, mostly C++ written servers. What would be the advantages to using Soap instead of Corba?

I main advantage I know is that SOAP can be tunneled through HTTP or HTTPS. This frees the problem of firewalls which restricts various ports.

Another advantage to consider is reach of your customers/business partners that will be accessing this service. There is a higher likelihood that these partners will be able to host a Web services infrastructure.
