Subject Re: Remote reference!

No-one ever said they wouldn't be URLs, of course!
My current experience (none yet with Axis) was that the frameworks 
offered little to register a new URLs with some methods of an object 
you have created.

Returning an iterator sort of object is what you need, for example, if 
you want to deliver a large (or slow) content as chunks. That doesn't 
seem like a killer or even like doing Corba but it doesn't seem to be 
such common practice.
