Remote Procedure Calls are evil...Maybe...
Saturday, May 24, 2008

We have a large industry that relies on RCPs. In fact, Web Services are a form of RCPs, the web is a form of RCPs that works on top TCP/IP, mobile phones work in a similar paradigm.

Is it really that broken? I'm not as pessimistic--I mean, it kind of works, with its coupling and all its ugly history.

Someone at reddit said the following:
    Eight fallacies of distributed computing
    As long as you understand above, RPC is quite OK.
A simple statement that covers quite a lot: everything is about the OSI model. In other words, do your homework and things will work out.
