It's only kind of SOA on the same machine, in other words IPC between a
client JVM and pluggable services written in Fortran for example, with
no more dependency than the service interface already specified.

Exchange between apps is RPC, so Corba or WS are possible solutions
offering low coupling. Obviously, for flexibility, extensibility ...
reasons, I am sure that I want to avoid any JNI or JNI-like solution.

Testing a WS with client and server on the same machine is a similar
approach, though I am looking for ideas to reduce the delay between
request and response.
