RPC::XML - An implementation of XML-RPC Version: 0.76 WHAT IS IT 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. USING RPC::XML 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 'http://www.oreillynet.com/meerkat/xml-rpc/server.php'; 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 BUILDING/INSTALLING 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.

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/Method.pm. Rewrote to remove that but include the (forgotten) XMLLibXML.pm module. That test has to be conditional on the presence of XML::LibXML. * 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/Server.pm RT #65616: Fix for slow methods killing servers. Applied and modified patch from person who opened the ticket. * MANIFEST * lib/RPC/XML.pm * 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.
