Hessian Web Services

I just ran across a great little library for web services, called Hessian. It is a binary web service (ie not xml) so its messages are much more compact and easier to transfer. In addition, the client and server libraries don’t require nearly as large a framework. It looks really easy and there are libraries to support Java, Python, and PHP — and maybe a few others that slipped my mind.
