Subject Apache Thrift Serialization Framework
Date Thu, 21 Jan 2010 04:54:02 GMT
Anyone played with Apache Thrift?  It's an Incubator project at the 
moment, it's reported to be a fast and light cross platform, cross 
language serialization framework (common language object types), it's 
lighter than CORBA.  It could be used by a smart proxy, to talk to a 
service written in another programming language.  It might also be 
utilised some day to make a Jini service available to another 
programming language, where the Jini service uses a defined subset of 
built in java language objects. Lookup & Discovery would need a 
different mechanism than exists today however.

Just thought you might be interested to know, if you didn't already.

Cheers,

Peter.
