Redstone XML-RPC Library / News: Recent posts

New Release - 1.1.1

It was quite a while since a new release of the library which indicates that it appears to be quite stable. Nevertheless, it's time for a minor release which fixes an important limitation.

Until 1.1.1 there was no way of adding InvocationHandlers to an XmlRpcServer without specifying which namespace the handler should respond to. This required all XML-RPC methods exposed by a server to be in the format "namespace.methodname". There was no way of just exposing "methodname" as the service name.... read more

Version 1.1 released

A new version of the Redstone XML-RPC Library has been released.

Various fixes and additions:

Base64 encoding now accepts line breaks to increase compatibility. Thanks Paul Winkler for filing a bug.

Character encoding can now be selected by setting a property in the properties file. It defaults to UTF-8 but can be overridden to any valid encoding. Thanks to A.J (ozzzburn) and Paul Rene Joergensen for filing bug reports.... read more

Marquee XML-RPC becomes Redstone XML-RPC

The Marquee XML-RPC library has become Redstone XML-RPC. The old library code and releases are still available and the CVS will be updated with bug fixes related to it. In Subversion there is new code available which is described in the project home page.

The Marquee library will remain for backwards compatibility but will probably not receive any new functionality. The new Redstone release is very similar to the Marquee code base although it is not 100% compatible.... read more

New release coming.

Hi all,

During the past 7-8 months we have been extremely busy with a customer case which has made the XML-RPC library suffer. Now things are cooling down and we can get back to freshing up the library. There are a few things on the menu; better thread handling, Log4J logging, bug fixes, SAX2 parser, and more. We'll be updating the library soon. Constributions are very welcome!

Thanks for all the input so far, and sorry for not responding in time.... read more

Hi all,

Support for GZIP-encoded XML payloads supported thanks to Micah Spears.

A new build script for Ant supplied, also thanks to Toby Allsopp and Peace Software.... read more

Feedback Wanted!

As the download count is reaching 1200 it would be nice hearing from the people who've tried out the package or is using it in some kind of development. In order to improve the library, we have to hear from you. There is new support for GZIPed XML payloads in CVS and a new Ant build script, and we're planning on refining the thread handling code in the server. After that, a new release will be available. What functionality, new or revised, do you want to see in the library?... read more

New developer!

Rainer Bischof has joined the team of developers at Marque XML-RPC. He is currently working on an extension to the library that allows serialization and deserialization of object graphs. This extension makes it easier to use Java XML-RPC endpoints that work similar to RMI.

The extension will be released late this weekend or early next week.
