Persistent Objects Based On Web Services
- Is there a standard or product (open source or commercial) for
creating persistent objects using web services? For example, I
want to be able to create an object on an object server, invoke
methods on it, get its properties etc, all using web services.
I am looking for something where the objects are more persistent
than cookies. Ideally they should be stored in a database.
Another requirement is that the whole interface should be exposed
only through web services.
I can roll my own using an object identifier technique. But
that's the last resort. It seems like a general enough problem
that I wondered if there was already a solution for this out
Any pointers would be really useful. I am specially interested in
open source projects and standards around this. But commercial
products or unimplemented standards would be find too.

Take a look at OpenLink Virtuoso, you can download a free eval from:
The Objects in question may be .NET CLR/CLI based or Mono ( http://www.go-mono.com ) CLI based, Java based, or even C++ based. You can even make a SOAP Service a TYPE within Virtuoso (imagine creating a DB column that is base on a TYPE derived from a SOAP service?).
