why web is services adopted by industry and become the dominant way in integration field, while corba fails?
Corba:
is created much earlier than web services.
is open.
provides platform/implementation independency.
provide both synchronize and asynchronized interaction mechanism.
provide security, transaction, registry ... services which is essential for real applications.
provides tunnel for http...

web services' security, transaction ... are still in its early statge.
why people need to reinvent the wheel?
just because:
xml is human readable
web servicesis is adopted by major software vendors like MS and ibm
web servicesis is new ?

I get the impression that most people find CORBA to be very hard to deal with and full of annoying non-standard usages.
The reasons:
xml is human readable
web servicesis is adopted by major software vendors like MS and ibm

are quite powerful as far as I am concerned.
I can create or edit a SOAP message in my programming editor and send it to a service for debugging. Compare that with CORBA.
