Overview

Have you ever needed to share processing between two or more computers running programs written in different languages on different operating systems? Or have you ever wanted to publish information on the Web so that programs other than browsers could work with it? XML-RPC, a system for remote procedure calls built on XML and the ubiquitous HTTP protocol, is the solution you've been looking for.

Programming Web Services with XML-RPC introduces the simple but powerful capabilities of XML-RPC, which lets you connect programs running on different computers with a minimum of fuss, by wrapping procedure calls in XML and establishing simple pathways for calling functions. With XML-RPC, Java programs can talk to Perl scripts, which can talk to Python programs, ASP applications, and so on. You can provide access to procedure calls without having to worry about the system on the other end, so it's easy to create services that are available on the Web.

XML-RPC isn't the only solution for web services; the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) is another much-hyped protocol for implementing web services. While XML-RPC provides fewer capabilities than SOAP, it also has far fewer interoperability problems and its capabilities and limitations are much better understood. XML-RPC is also stable, with over 30 implementations on a wide variety of platforms, so you can start doing real work with it immediately.

Programming Web Services with XML-RPC covers the details of five XML-RPC implementations, so you can get started developing distributed applications in Java, Perl, Python, ASP, or PHP. The chapters on these implementations contain code examples that you can use as the basis for your own work. This book also provides in-depth coverage of the XML-RPC specification, which is helpful for low-level debugging of XML-RPC clients and servers. And if you want to build your own XML-RPC implementation for another environment, the detailed explanations in this book will serve as a foundation for that work.

    Night To Remember- Part Nine (Edd

    ((Nuu the last few chapters! These last few chapters is gonn be Edd from his POV)) I quickly yet quietly closed the door to my house. Swooning over Claire, I went to my room and layed in the same spot I was before. I decided to text Claire. 'Miss ya! ;)' Then, hit send. I got a quick reply. 'Same. Just wondering, are we official?' I thought about it. We did kiss and confess our love for each other. 'I think so.' I texted back. 'Good. Cause after all that from last night and NOT saying we are official would be crazy! Amanda is begging me to walk her to Tom's. Love ya!' I smiled. 'Bye, love ya 2.' I typed. 'Maybe we can hangout later?' I texted. For a while I didn't get a text. 'Sure! At your house.' The doorbell rang and I smiled, racing downstairs. I swung open the door and quickly hugged Claire. I picked her up by the waist from behind and swung her around. She laughed and I let go. "Ready?" I asked. She nodded and we were on our way. "So, what first?" "Candy shop!" She pointed at the local candy shop and I smiled. "Let's go!" She raced to it and I followed. She gazed at all the candy. But one caught her eye. "Gummy bears." She drooled. "Wanna get some?" She nodded like a child and i grabbed a bag and poured some in. I gave it to her and she looked around. "I'm done here." She stated and handed the cashier the gummy bears. I noticed he was glancing up at Claire from time to time. He was a bit nerdy, acne, big thick rimmed glasses, and head gear. I pulled her closer and wrapped an arm around her waist. She didn't pay attention and gazed around our little town. Once he handed us our gummy bears, she tore open the bag. "Thank you!" "Call me?" He asked. She walked off. "Listen, she's in a relationship with me. Back off." I said. He snorted and helped snotty kids. Claire ate the gummy bears and walked around. "He wasn't my type." She said. I smiled and held her hand. "Frozen!" She said, pointing at a movie poster. "I have money." She dragged me inside after I said that. "Two adult tickets to see Frozen." I said. The woman handed us our tickets and we bought popcorn. As we sat down, the movie started. It was actually quite interesting. Claire seemed so into Elsa and Anna. They're bond as sisters. After the movie, we walked home. "Let it go, Let it go." Claire sung quietly. I smiled and spun her around. "Can't hold it back anymore." I sang back to her. We laughed and sung as rain soon greeted us. We laughed more. I stopped laughing to admire Claire. The rain made her blonde hair seem brunette and her eyes looked more green than hazel. "Claire." I said. She stopped and faced me. Being inches apart, I couldn't resist but lean in and kiss her. Not too rough, not too soft. In the middle. I kissed her lips with passion yet with gentleness. As we pulled away, we stayed close to each other. "I fell in love with you like I fall asleep. One bit at a time, then all at once." She whispered. ((If you know what thats from leave a comment saying where!)) I smiled and held her hands. The rain kept pelting us, getting us drenched. We didn't care. "I could hug you all day. In the rain, snow, hail, any weather. I'll protect you." I said, scopping her up bridal style. She blushed and snuggled close. I walked to her house and knocked. Matt opened up and glanced at Claire. He smirked and let me in. I walked up to the guest room and layed her on the bed. She yawned. "Out. I gotta change." She said, shoving me out. I smiled. ((Wrap!))
