This week's giveaway is in the Java/Jakarta EE forum. We're giving away four copies of Java EE 8 High Performance and have Romain Manni-Bucau on-line! See I believe that CORBA is way better then Web services (I don't have any exp. with Web services so this might be a bit biased), but still think that web services will be the way to go for entreprise systems integration because of media hype, and the "right" time people think integration and B2B app are the way too cool these days. PS: CORBA allows you to write apps in any languge, and there exists many IDL language mappings (java/C/C++.) and you can make it run on a Windows box for sure. U can make it run on anuthing and with any language if your app talks IIOP (the same for web servuces SOAP)

I agree that there is not much activity in corba group where as in web services , technologies are up to data and compatible with latest specifications. Is the area of application different for Corba and Web Services ?? From the discussion above , I perceive that there is no clear cut difference. please let me know your comments.

I don't beleive there is a clear cut, and the decision should be made according to many factors. Generally speaking, if you are in control of both applications you want to inegrate (both are within your domain), then Go for Corba (for performance reasons, generating XML and parsing it is time consuming, even if there are some vendors that have made their own binary XML format (read Microsoft)), if it is rather a B2B or a customer interface you want to add, then you should probably provide a Web services interface, so your customers think you are cool and up-to date. The same goes if you want to integrate with other businesses, chances are good they already made the choice for you, or are going to use web services.
