How to develop interoperable applications using java or j2ee? for example if my j2ee application running on weblogic app server on top of solaris want to communicate or transfer a object to another application which is entirely designed and developed on .NET platform.. how these two applications communicate each other seamlessly? i've read CORBA facilitate these functionality? is that right ? or its more easier to acheive through webservices??? For me webservices are really tough understand.. i've tried reading articles over the web and i'm not successful.. My co-worker told me to understand the basics of XML, schemas before diving into webservices..
Please advise me .. Thanks in advance...

SOAP probably has the most highly developed set of tools for communication between different platforms and a wide variety of languages.
If you don't need the advanced security capabilities or otherwise require SOAP, then RESTful style web services will be the easiest to implement.
Don't think in terms of transferring an "object" but in terms of standard variable types and values.
Yes, at some point you will need a basic understanding of XML.
