In fact I really think that web services are a win for functionnal
programming and for Erlang in particular.
The way to architect a distributed application based on web services is
very similar to the way you would build an Erlang application ...
except the fact that you get extra feature with Erlang:
- Fault tolerance,
- High-availability mecanism,
- Fast development,
For more information, you can have a look at my slides from the Firenze
So to answer your questions:
- Yes I think that OTP is a viable alternative to .NET and J2EE.
- Yes I am planning to add mecanism to interoperate with SOAP services
and probably J2EE.
If you are interested, maybe we could see if we could do something
