I highly appreciate your answer to the following question:

Comparing WebServices and CORBA, Is this true if we say
that in WebServices, communication (message /method
transportation) is based on the text rather than heavy
weight binary format in CORBA?

Thank you for your time and your consideration.

why would you say that binary code is heavy weight?

i would say webservices are more heavy weight because of the text format

So could we say that one of the benifits of WebServices is that any service could be applied on the fly without any instalation or other requirements on the client machine (while for instance, in CORBA or RMI stubs should be placed on the client machine)? Thank you for your reply.

No. WSDL doesn't restrict you to SOAP binding, so you can exchange any data.

Ok.

> without any instalation or other requirements on the client machine
If the client wants to use a new service they 1] need to know about it, 2] write code to use it.


Please ignore post, I have no idea what I am talking about.
