Fri, 11 Oct 2002 03:01:30 GMTApple: XML-RPC vs SOAP.
Sun, 07 Apr 2002 21:14:22 GMTSomething to think about. If Google is actually going to have a SOAP interface, what would such an interface look like? What would it do? What would be the most valuable SOAP calls? Which way does information flow? Should they support the Weblogs.Com ping interface? (I think so.) Let your mind run free. I think most of us use Google daily through its HTML interface. What will its web services interface do?
Fri, 15 Mar 2002 15:49:33 GMTThis morning I'm improving the MetaWeblog API. This post is coming from a script where I'm testing the code. It's an interesting way to write for a weblog. Back in a minute with some results. If this works you should see the post on the category pages, but not on the home page.

Thu, 20 Dec 2001 17:39:23 GMTThere's so much good news these days. Here's an article on Perl.Com that explains how to program Microsoft's Active Directory through XML-RPC, and avoid the locked trunks and have fun and support interop. Wow. Things are really sorting themselves out nicely. Thanks!
Wed, 19 Dec 2001 21:30:59 GMTStop the presses! Thanks to Daily Python-URL for digging up this article about XML-RPC on IBM DeveloperWorks. What a great story. He starts off saying in every way imaginable what a piece of expletive it is. Then proceeds to say that this is the highest praise possible. Right on. It's true. We make shitty software. With bugs.

Sun, 16 Dec 2001 14:37:02 GMTCliff Baeseman: "Well the weather here in Central Wisconsin has been sucking for the last few days. So what else could I do but churn up about 4000 lines of code to create a new VB XML-RPC client that well frankly does not suck."

Sun, 11 Mar 2001 06:41:16 GMTDizzyD talks about Jabber as middleware. As I understand it, we could use Jabber to transport XML-RPC and SOAP messages. Instead of sending a procedure call to an IP address, or domain name, you'd send it to a Jabber user. This would allow us to design groupware applications that reach any desktop Jabber can get to, and it would allow you to move around. (You'd have to have the groupware software on every machine, though.)

Wed, 07 Mar 2001 18:17:02 GMTA frequently asked question. What's the connection between SOAP and Jabber? It would be great to get a comparative review of these technologies by someone who's knows XML. Could Jabber have a SOAP or XML-RPC interface? If so, what would it look like? Does it make sense from the Jabber developer point of view? What would be the win? I don't have time to dig into this myself at this time but am interested in reading a comparison of the technologies.
Tue, 06 Mar 2001 03:22:23 GMTRFC: A Little IDL. "I decided to define a simple interface definition language in XML that's suitable for scripting environments, and see if people find holes in its functionality, or if it's useful, or something we want to do. It's little and human-readable. The goal is to have it work with scripting systems that are wired up to XML-RPC or SOAP 1.1."

Mon, 22 Jan 2001 15:29:55 GMTZopeNewbies: It looks like the big boys are starting to use XMLRPC. Last night I installed RedHat 7. This morning, while mucking about the config files, I came across the one for RedHat's new auto-update tool. It queries a server at RedHat for a list of new updates available for your box, and you choose whether or not to install the updates. Anyway, it looks like that new service relies upon XMLRPC.
