Web Services is NOT a Distributed Object access Architecture

It is surprising that many people still think of Web Services as a Distributed Object access architecture like CORBA or COM.

This is quoted from the post by Leonard Richardson

“The answer is that "Web Services” aren’t the web. They’re a heavyweight architecture for distributed object access, like COM and CORBA"

This is very misleading. Web Services is *NOT* a distributed object architecture.
WS is not object centric and has no notion of an object reference or distributed garbage collection.

So it is wrong to say *LIKE* CORBA or COM
