Web Services versus Distributed Objects

My paper with Janel Barfield on Web Services versus Distributed Objects: A Case Study of Performance and Interface Design was selected as the Best Paper at IEEE International Conference on Web Services ( ICWS) 2006. This paper has caused a little controversy... the basic idea of the first part is well-known, but I don't know of any formal benchmark comparisons that demonstrate the idea in a simple way. The wrappers are variaton on the standard "value object" pattern, but the "value" being sent is a transcript of some actions, not a data value as is uaually the case for value objects. The slides from talk were designed as an advertisement for the paper, and they at least woke up the audience at ICWS.
