RPC::XML - An implementation of XML-RPC Version: 0.43 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 Changed methods/methodSignature.code, t/40_server.t and t/60_net_server.t so that the provided system.methodSignature follows the accepted API (returns a list of lists, rather than list of strings). Pointed out by Bjoern Stierand. Added a missing helper (RPC_I4) to RPC::XML.pm. Fixed a bad bug with the newly-added compression support in Apache::RPC::Server::handler. Because $self was defined earlier, strict failed to point out that my object in that scope was called $srv, rather than $self. And $self->compress didn't work, amazingly enough. Found and reported by Scott Fagg. Added a credentials() method to the RPC::XML::Client class to set Basic Authentication credentials on the underlying LWP::UserAgent object. Per suggestion and sample implementation from Stuart Clark. Fixed a docs-nit in RPC::XML::Server, and did some major clean-up in the docs for RPC::XML. In particular, added documentation for one of the data class methods that had been overlooked ("type").
