[REBOL] Testers needed: Rugby over http

From: koopmans::itr::ing::nl at: 3-Sep-2001 15:59

Hi all, I just released a test version of Rugby over HTTP. (Rugby is a SOAP like thing on steroids). I need some people to test it. Originally I was going to release it as Rugby PRO, but this won't happen. It will stay free. You can find it at What has changed? serve now has a refinement /with-http that allows you to specify the port for http rugby. By default (and in secure-serve) this will be 8002 rexec and sexec now sport the /http refinement. This tunnels all your request over http. Nice to get past the firewalls and proxies. Rim+ anyone? Note that you can use url values when using the /with refinement, and you even have to do that when combined with /http get-rugby-service now also supports /http . The url is a http url, of course Functions that are imported using get-rugby-service all have three refinements: /oneway /deferred and /http , corrsponding to their rexec and sexec equivalents. As the http stuff was lots of work, please let me know what you think, and what the bugs are. The http proxy should perform really good ( is this something for you Pekr?) The hipe server engine has been largely rewritten to support multiple server ports with different handlers. I also need Rugby samples for the next release, so if you have any, with some short documentation, mail them to m.koopmans2 at chello dot nl The current release of Rugby (and the docs!) can be found at Thanks and enjoy, Maarten
