Introduction to XML-RPC

Interapplication communication can be a nasty problem for programmers. Many of the available options, such as JNI, can be difficult to use. XML-RPC provides a much easier solution. It's clean, simple to implement, and well supported by open source libraries for most popular programming languages (such as Java language and C++). If you have a Java application, for example, that needs to talk to an application written in C++, XML-RPC just might be the simplest approach. In this article, software developer and coach Roy Miller talks about what XML-RPC is and how to use it effectively.
rating comment: The article gives a very brief and pragmatic introduction to XML-RPC. With a simple example it points out, how communication looks like and how easy it is to implement a client and a server component.
