One of the things that CORBA does have going for it that Java doesn't (for
is the notion of persistent object references/URLs. i.e. that it doesn't
if the object is active in memory, or pickled to tape, punch-cards, or
in play-doh; if you've got an adapter that can unpickle/reactivate it, that
objref/URL is always useable as-is.
That means that you don't need to pre-walk your structure in order to pickle.
Just pickle the ref, and it's still valid. By-value, or by-reference doesn't
What ever happened to those "synergistic" arguments that we were expecting
"How I learned to stop worrying and love HTTP" paper? I think you'd do a
to concentrate on those points than to try to find flaws with distributed
computing. Plus, I'm really interested to hear them.
