XMLRPC

Build Status

Overview

XMLRPC is a lightweight protocol that enables remote procedure calls over HTTP. It is defined at http://www.xmlrpc.com.

XMLRPC allows you to create simple distributed computing solutions that span computer languages. Its distinctive feature is its simplicity compared to other approaches like SOAP and CORBA.

The Ruby standard library package 'xmlrpc' enables you to create a server that implements remote procedures and a client that calls them. Very little code is required to achieve either of these.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'xmlrpc'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install xmlrpc

Example

Try the following code. It calls a standard demonstration remote procedure.

require 'xmlrpc/client'
require 'pp'

server = XMLRPC::Client.new2("http://xmlrpc-c.sourceforge.net/api/sample.php")
result = server.call("sample.sumAndDifference", 5, 3)
pp result

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake test to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
