Corba data -> XML

I have implemented a distributed object system that used XML for object 
migration and distributed messaging.

There is only a small amount of meta data (DTD definition) required to drive 
such a system. The kind of thing you scribbled may need a few refinements 
but is essentially all that is required. In addition to a dynamic invocation 

If one takes the view that the Object and thus it's serialised form  (the 
XML) IS the message / operation then it all just falls out.

As a general point it would be good to see XML become the standard for 
object serialisation / migration  and distributed messaging. Consider how 
JINI / distributed services in general could become more open if all the 
services, and calls were not only described in XML but could be invoked 
using "XML Messaging".
