RPC::XML - An implementation of XML-RPC
Version: 0.76
The RPC::XML package is an implementation of XML-RPC. The module provides
classes for sample client and server implementations, a server designed as an
Apache location-handler, and a suite of data-manipulation classes that are
used by them.
There are not any pre-packaged executables in this distribution (except for a
utility tool). Client usage will usually be along the lines of:
use RPC::XML::Client;
my $client = new RPC::XML::Client
my $req = RPC::XML::request->new('meerkat.getChannelsBySubstring', 'perl');
my $res = $client->send_request($req);
# This returns an object of the RPC::XML::response class. This double-call
# of value() first gets a RPC::XML::* data object from the response, then
# the actual data from it:
my $value = $res->value->value;
Running a simple server is not much more involved:
use RPC::XML::Server;
my $srv = new RPC::XML::Server (host => 'localhost',
port => 9000);
# You would then use $srv->add_method to add some remotely-callable code
$srv->accept_loop; # Stays in an accept/connect loop
This package is set up to configure and build like a typical Perl extension.
To build:
perl Makefile.PL
make && make test
If RPC::XML passes all tests, then:
make install
You may need super-user access to install.

* etc/make_method
* lib/RPC/XML/
RT #70258: Fixed typos in docs pointed out by Debian team.
* lib/Apache/RPC/
Better version of the fix for infinite loops. This is the patch
originally suggested by the Eric Cholet, who found the bug.
* t/00_load.t
RT #70280: This test was still testing RPC/XML/
Rewrote to remove that but include the (forgotten)
module. That test has to be conditional on the presence of
* Makefile.PL
* t/51_client_with_host_header.t
Clean up test suite to work with older Test::More. Also specify
a minimum Test::More that supports subtest(). This is also a
part of RT #70280.
* t/11_base64_fh.t
* t/20_xml_parser.t
* t/21_xml_libxml.t
* t/40_server.t
These tests had failures when run as root. Permissions-based
negative tests were incorrectly passing.
* t/10_data.t
Moved the 64-bit "TODO" tests to a SKIP block. Non-64-bit
systems will skip, rather than fail, these tests.
* lib/RPC/XML/
RT #65616: Fix for slow methods killing servers. Applied and
modified patch from person who opened the ticket.
* lib/RPC/
* t/10_data.t
* t/14_datetime_iso8601.t (added)
RT #55628: Improve flexibility of date parsing. This adds the
ability to pass any ISO 8601 string to the
RPC::XML::datetime_iso8601 constructor.
