Hi everyone,
If someone is not using web services today, what are they using? What are the possible groups of technologies involved in deploying a communication service that accomplishes what web services can do today?

if the alternative is corba why people going for webservice, whats wrong with corba? even j2ee people also prefering webservices now a days. With corba the interoperability is possible like communication with dot net and j2ee? Does corba provides any idl interfaces for dotnet?

There is a proposal out on an IDL to WSDL mapping. As far as the "CORBA vs. Web Services" question, that is a hot debate, here is a link. My take is one big advantage of web services involves the Microsoft position whereas in the CORBA days, Microsoft was competing with COM/DCOM.

You can also use RMI if you're guaranteed that both the client and the server are in Java. RMI is easier to set up than CORBA.
