Q

CORBA vs. SOAP Web services

Could you please explain the similarity and differences between CORBA and SOAP Web services?

CORBA is a distributed object standard, SOAP is a communication standard. A better comparison would be CORBA and Web services. Both standards use standard communications mechanisms, CORBA uses IIOP (Internet Inter ORB Protocol), and Web services uses SOAP. Both have interface definition languages, CORBA's is IDL (interface definition language), and in the world of Web services it's WSDL (Web Services Definition Language).
