| marshalling using xml?

The XML-RPC people already do marshalling with XML, although not in a
CORBA context. (This makes sense, since if you have CORBA IIOP is much
more attractive for various reasons, one of which is speed.)


Also, the OMG has recently issued a specification they call XMI, which
provides a mapping from an OMG information model to an XML DTD. You
can find the specification on the OMG site. (My copy is still in the
to-be-read heap, unfortunately.)

Personally, I'm currently doing an MSc thesis on what CORBA and
SGML/XML may have to contribute to one another in the context of
building publishing systems. I hope to complete that thesis in the
very near future.

If you're interested you can come to Metastructures '99 to hear me
talk about it. :)
