[REBOL] Testers needed: Rugby over http
From: koopmans::itr::ing::nl at: 3-Sep-2001 15:59
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 http://www.rebolforces.com/~erebol/rugby-next.tar.gz
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
/oneway /deferred and /http , corrsponding to their rexec and sexec
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,
