RPC forever / 永远的 RPC

I put the RPC (Remote Procedure Call) as title, but it didn't exactly talking about the RPC. :) Sorry! Indeed it is talking about the distribution computing, but this one is too large, sometimes, it just causes confusing. ;)
When the computer networks born in 1970s, distribution computing was coming in the vision, from that time to now. Variety of RPC/IPC mechanism were invited into the world. I think at least some of them are very familiar with you:
  • BSD Socket
  • telnet
  • FTP
  • SMTP/POP3/IMAP
  • NNTP
  • RSH/RLOGIN
  • ONC-RPC / DEC-RPC
  • NFS
  • HTTP
  • XMPP
  • SSH
  • CORBA/IIOP/GIOP
  • DCOM/COM
  • Java/RMI
  • SOAP/Web Service
  • XML-RPC
  • JSON
And so one! In the computer worlds, people do the similar things time and time again.
Because the IT industry always need the fresh blood!!!
Something else changed, you also want to change yours. :)

人都是喜新厌旧的!
