RPC::XML - An implementation of XML-RPC Version: 0.46 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. PROBLEMS/BUG REPORTS Please send any reports of problems or bugs to firstname.lastname@example.org SEE ALSO XML-RPC: http://www.xmlrpc.com/spec The Artistic License: http://language.perl.com/misc/Artistic.html CHANGES Applied a patch from Andrew Langmead to fix a bug in the uri() method of RPC::XML::Client. Prior, retrieving the value could accidentally reset it. Applied another fix from him to prevent a possible warning. Applied another patch to better handle testing of the availability of compression in the client. Moving around some of the RPM spec-file generation caused problems with some people trying to build the package if spec.in was missing. Fixed this in Makefile.PL. Fix to RPC::XML::Procedure per tip from Stig Porsgaard, to fix the reading of 'signature' arguments to new() when providing all the proc data directly. Reported by others as well, but Stig nailed it down to a specific line.
