.NET Magazine - Web Services: Decide Between J2EE and .NET Web Services "Microsoft has reinvented its distributed computing development and deployment platform around XML and Web services. Therefore, the .NET platform is less mature than most Java-based application servers, where vendors have tended to view Web services support more as an add-on to a proven technology. However, Microsoft seems to have done the right thing by taking the plunge. The big question in all of this, of course, is whether the "embrace and extend" approach is superior to the "redesign and rework" approach when it comes to Web services. Are Web services sufficiently different from the features and functions that motivated J2EE and Windows DNA originally? Given the tremendous interest and activity around them, the answer seems to be yes."
