[REBOL] Re: Google + SOAP

I'm not talking about speed or Rugby's efficiency, which is certainly admirable, but there are things Rugby can't do anything about ... Rugby is blocking when executing long-running functions, like doing data analysis involving data gathering from multiple data sources (and many scenarios more). I've just had a look at the cooperative threading model, and it might be good enough for a lot of cases (though, in general, I don't like coop multithreading too much, it usually complexifies otherwise simple programs enormously).

Unfortunately not. That's why I am asking here ... BTW, Roger Sessions may well talk a lot of nonsense, but his observation regarding SOAP I support. SOAP is (rather) complex when compared to XML-RPC or REBOL messaging. It is probably extremely simple simple when compared to CORBA. And he who deems "XML" simple hasn't seen it in its full glory. -- Chris
