[REBOL] beta of async:// xml-rpc

From: maarten::vrijheid::net at: 25-Feb-2004 16:22

Hi All, I integrated async:// from Gabriele with rebXR from Andreas. rebXR is an XML-RPC implementation, allowing you to invoke remote functions in REBOL, Java, >NET, Perl .... See for more info. This version, which I hope Andreas will integrate The Right Way in rebXR as 1.4.0 adds the possibility for an async client and a standalone server. Added: xmlrpc-serve 9005 [ function names go here ] This will start a little HTTP 1.0 daemon on port 9005 that captures any requests and processes them e.g. xml-rpc-serve 9090 [ add ] will expose the add function to XML-RPC clients. Note that the server is also async:// based. For the server you need async-protocol.r , libxmlrpc.r and async-xmlrpc.r Added: async-xmlrpc-exec "host:port/path" [ add 1 2 ] With no proto at the host (it is converted to async://), and the callback getting the value of the invocation or an error! value. If the latter is not handled, there is a silent exit. The callback *must* be supplied and can be used to initiate an action once a value is received, for example updating a GUI, printing, .... Doing I/O in the callback, or calling a wait might result in trouble (I/O from within I/O handlers is never a good idea). Haven't tested that (I suspect writing to a file is OK) example: async-xmlrpc-exec "localhost:9090" [add 1 2] :print forever [wait []] For the client you need async-protocol.r , libxmlrpc.r and async-xmlrpc-client.r And change a few do's at the beginning for both client and servers... Get the beta at: The API may change, depending on what Andreas wants it to look like in the offical release. --Maarten
