it would be very nice to have PHP bindings.

well, I think you'll need Bonobo bindings, although it might be possible
to just use PHP-ORBit (ORBit bindings for Python) to access the CORBA
objects. The only problem on using only ORBit is, as you say, the
activation, which will be more problematic than using OAF directly. But
I think this is something that can be done perfectly.

oops, that is a very nice idea. In theory, you should just have a
gda-xmlrpc-srv component which listens to a SOAP/XML-RPC port and maps
XML requests/responses to GDA CORBA calls.
Or, another way would be to have this gda-xmlrpc-srv a client thing and
have a SOAP/XML-RPC server respond to the calls (via HTTP+XML) from the

That would be a really nice thing to experiment on. Please keep us
informed if you start working on something like this
