RPC replacement?

I am dealing with an application that used RPC. I don't feel it is the best choice and am looking for a better solution. Is there another product that can take RPC's place? SOAP/XML are becoming hot as well lately -- are they considered middleware?
SOAP is a transaction protocol, XML is a text presentation protocol. RPC is a method invocation protocol that could be used to implement SOAP transactions. Your question is on target in the sense that SOAP over HTTP is simpler than RPC and may eventually replace more difficult-to-implement protocols, such as CORBA.
