Can anyone shed some light on how these architectures fare in comparison to each other. Or is their a link that someone can share perhaps.

Regards,

how do you want to compare and contrast them?

Corba is a lot like RMI, but is designed to be cross language and cross platform. Since I tend to use Java, I dislike all the extra "stuff" that Corba brings. But if you want to do C++ to Java from an Intel PC to a Itanium Server, Corba is your solution.

SOAP is just XML, both Corba and RMI are about remote execution of procedures (functions). Different problem space.

CORBA uses IIOP which is more efficient in transfering data then Webservices using SOAP which send there data in text based XML.
