SOAP vs. IIOP

Hi All,

A quick question that I have is basically, why do web services use SOAP instead of IIOP?

It may seem a basic question but it's because I don't have much of a clue about them, I am more an EJB man. From my understanding both protocols are cross-platform, etc..

Anyone who can help, it's very appreciated.

Thanx, James

IIOP - is heavy weight protocol and stateful
SOAP - is light weight protocol, stateless
