According to ZDNet's Matt Loney, "The rift between IBM and Microsoft over Web services widened further over the weekend when Web services evangelists from each company clashed over the relative merits of .NET and Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) for building applications that can talk to each other over the Internet." So much for Web services partnerhships. These two have been amiable partners on the W3C as well as a new Web services consortium. I guess we'll see what impact this has, or where this could go.
What are your thoughts on this seemingly never-ending debate?
Same old, Same old
Shame on you for promoting a stupid article, that tries to create a "battle of the titans" while contributing exactly zero to the debate. The back and forth between the two company spokespeople had exactly zero to do with web services. It was about the relative merits of C# and Java as programming environments, not about the worth of web services.
