[REBOL] Re: Presentation - XML-RPC

From: jason:cunliffe:verizon at: 16-Sep-2002 19:17

Hi Bruno Welcome to reboltopia!

I just spent half an hour playing with it and I got similar error... I started by making a simple file for myself %testrebxr.r to make sure all the library files were loaded. Then tried the examples in the docs at When I ran the first simple client test, I get this XML error:
>> xmlrpc-exec [ examples.getStateName 41 ]
** XML-RPC Fault: Code: 6 Message: Poorly formed XML text, didn't find a '>' after a '<'. (At character #174.) ** Near: make error! e
I could not see where this is coming from [but did not try very hard]. I assume it is in the XML parse, though there may be xml-rpc changes at betty.userland since rebXR was written. Anyway, I invoked the server with the little test example in the Docs.
>> add 1 2
== 3
>> subtract 5 4
== 1
>> cgi-serve [ add subtract ]
Then opened another REBOL shell:
>> remote: make xmlrpc-client []
== http://localhost
>> remote/exec [add 1 2]
** Access Error: Cannot connect to localhost ** Where: exec ** Near: con: open to-url rejoin ["tcp://" url/host ":" url/port-id] same as you... so then I tried again with a fixed IP, and got this:
>> remote2: make xmlrpc-client [] >> remote2/set-server: ;my IP address created by DHCP
server ==
>> remote2/exec [add 1 2]
** Script Error: Cannot use path on none! value ** Where: rejoin ** Near: server/path server/target
Sorry I can not help your further right now. Perhaps this a clue. I'd like to use rebXR myself, so please keep me posted. ./Jason
