11		<H3>XmlRpc++ Library</H3>
12		<P>This is version 0.7 of XmlRpc++, an implementation of the <A HREF="http://www.xmlrpc.org">
13				XmlRpc protocol</A> written in C++, based upon Shilad Sen's excellent <A HREF="http://py-xmlrpc.sourceforge.net">
14				py-xmlrpc library</A>. XmlRpc++ is designed to make it easy to incorporate 
15			XmlRpc client and server support into C++ applications. Or use both client and 
16			server objects in your app for easy peer-to-peer support.
17		</P>
18		<H3>Features</H3>
19		<UL>
20			<li>
21				<STRONG>Easy</STRONG> &nbsp; This library is easy to incorporate into C++ 
22				applications. No other libraries are required, other than your system's socket 
23				libraries. Simple XML parsing and HTTP support are built in.<br>
24			<li>
25				<STRONG>Fast</STRONG> &nbsp; All IO is non-blocking, so a slow client or 
26				network will not slow down the server.<br>
27			<li>
28				<STRONG>Portable</STRONG> Written in standard C++ to the POSIX and Windows 
29				sockets APIs. You do need a fairly recent compiler (g++ 3.1 or MSVC++ .Net or 
30				MSVC++ 6 with the <A href="http://www.dinkumware.com/vc_fixes.html">STL patches</A>.)
31			</li>
32			<li>
33				<STRONG>Free</STRONG> &nbsp; This library is released under the <a href="http://www.gnu.org/">
34					GNU</a> <a href="http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/lesser.html">LGPL</a>.<br>
35				<br>
36			</li>
37		</UL>
38		<P>&nbsp;</P>
39		<h3>Changes</h3>
40		<UL>
41			<li>
42				Better handling of fault responses: server methods can throw an 
43				XmlRpcException to return a fault and XmlRpcClient has a new method to 
44				test whether the last response was a fault.</li>
45			<li>
46				Support for system.listMethods and system.methodHelp from the introspection 
47				API.</li>
48			<li>
49				Support for system.multicall to process multiple requests in a single transaction.</li>
50			<li>
51				Fixed a problem in the XmlRpcServer destructor (it should not have been deleting the methods).</li>
52			<li>
53				The server ensures a valid result value is returned even if the method does not
54				set the result. The default result is an empty string.</li>
55			<li>
56				Doxygen comments in header files and a doc target in the makefile.</li>
57		</UL>
58		<P>
59		<P>&nbsp;</P>
60		<h3>Installation</h3>
61		<P>
62			There are VC++ 6 and VC++ .Net project files building on Windows. If you are 
63			using VC++ 6, you should apply SP3 and the fixes at <A href="http://www.dinkumware.com/vc_fixes.html">
64				http://www.dinkumware.com/vc_fixes.html</A>. Be sure to set the appropriate 
65			code generation switches. In particular, ensure that the runtime library 
66			(single/multi-threaded, static library/DLL) used is the same for the XmlRpc++ 
67			code and whatever application it will be linked to.</P>
68		<P>
69			For Linux, Solaris, and other Unix-like platforms there is a GNU Makefile which 
70			can be edited to suit your system. Specify your C++ compiler, compiler flags, 
71			and your system's socket libraries.
72		</P>
73		<p>In the test directory there are various test programs that are built by default. 
74			To verify that the library built correctly, you can start the HelloServer 
75			example:<br>
76			<pre>HelloServer 8000
77			</pre>
78			and the HelloClient example in another terminal window:<br>
79			<pre>HelloClient localhost 8000
80			</pre>
81		<P>
82			You should see two Hello messages and a sum displayed (amongst a bunch of debug 
83			output). You can also try the XML server validator program (eg, "Validator 80") 
84			and then attempt to connect to it from <A href="http://validator.xmlrpc.com">http://validator.xmlrpc.com</A>
85			(if you have access to the internet and are not behind a firewall etc).

88		<P><A href="mailto:cmorley@users.sourceforge.net">Chris Morley</A>
89		</P>
90		<P>Although no code was re-used, the design and structure of the library is based 
91			upon the py-xmlrpc library implementation.<BR>
92			The base64 decoder/encoder is by <A href="mailto:lostd@ukr.net">Konstantin 
93				Pilipchuk</A>.</P>
