Hi,
All this hype and hoopla about webservices and soap and all this jazz. I have a small question. Can I pass around OBJECTS instead of plain old text between languages and machines? Images, sound files, and such?
If not, what really am I gaining with all this XML mumbojumbo which results in needless HUGE and SLOW files, and needs me to install all these parsers and whatNot when I could have just achieved similar effects with plain old CVS or some such format. (Also easier on net traffic).
Please enlighten me! I am so sure I am missing something here.
Ignorantly,
MM

Oh, and by the way, when are we going to see some meaningful examples - not the usual weather or stock quotes balderdash?
