xmlrpc-c-0.9.9: description + notes
XML-RPC is a quick-and-easy way to make procedure calls over the Internet. It converts the procedure call into XML document, sends it to a remote server using HTTP, and gets back the response as XML.
This library provides a modular implementation of XML-RPC for C and C++. The current release of xmlrpc-c is intended for developers who need immediate support for XML-RPC. The library has the following limitations:
- The library treats <dateTime.iso8601> values as strings.
- The HTTP code (especially on the server side) may need some tweaking for use with your application.
On the other hand, the following features are already present:
- C API and experimental C++ API.
- Modular XML-RPC core: If you want, you can supply all your own HTTP code.
- Synchronous and asynchronous XML-RPC clients based on w3c-libwww.
- Multithreaded XML-RPC server based on the Abyss web server.
- Full support for basic types, including <struct>, <array> and <base64>.
- Extensive test suites to help verify correct behavior and correct error handling.
- Passes the official XML-RPC validator1 test suite.
For information on using XML-RPC with other languages, see the XML-RPC HOWTO.
Developers intending to use this distribution for application development should be sure to read the information in FAQ 3.8.
