SORCER is an Object Oriented Computing Environment and Web Service is Protocol Oriented Computing Environment. Both these implementations of Service Oriented Architectures have Service Providers which can provide services. But due to the limitations of their respective frameworks, a Service Requester fi-om one environment cannot access the Service Provider in the other. A seamless integration framework is needed to make them coexist and complement each other in the same environment. This new framework provides what is known as provider transparency (i.e. A Service Requester in one environment accesses the Service Providers in the same or another environment the same way.)
