Been reading Web Services Essentials, it has been an interesting introduction to Web Services, but the author seems very focused on using complex data types inside XML. The problem with this is that it then needs to do some funky mapping stuff under the hood to get it to the right complex data format for your language choice, this is CORBA, DCOM, UNO etc… all wrapped in XML which just seems wrong to me, passing objects wrapped in XML is wrong Why do you need to pass objects over SOAP, if the object does not anything while being transported? Instead transform your object’s attributes to XML and back again, this should be your mapping, not some funky under the hood DCOM/CORBA style mapping.
Objects in XML is just WRONG
