I don't understand the model now. - I don't know what Rugby IO engine stands for exactly. I thought it is easy as following: - rugby uses two transport mechanisms - tcp and http (allowing to overcome proxies/firewalls) - XML-RPC is protocol wrapped in http layer. There can be planty of them. The same could be said about http itself (just one of tcp protocols family). But the truth probably is, that http is enought to be regarded low-level for Rugby, while XML-RPC lives really in upper layer. If you want, make some isolation and modularity in a following way: tcp http ------- ------------ XML-RPC|SOAP|Other That's just my opinion - XML-RPC is in no way different to http protocol, than is SOAP, or anything else using http as a transport layer ... ... but also ... maybe I am just confused :-) -pekr-
