Revision history for Perl extension RPC::XML. 0.25 Tue Jun 12 22:35:09 PDT 2001 This is the initial release. 0.26 Mon Jun 25 22:30:18 PDT 2001 Fixed some doc errors in RPC::XML::Server. Mainly things I had simplified, but not updated the docs to reflect. Added a fair amount to the docs in Apache::RPC::Server. In particular, a new section was added that illustrates using <Perl> configuration sections to create the server objects in the master Apache process, so that they are automatically inherited by children. 0.27 Sun Jul 8 16:25:51 PDT 2001 Removed a -w warning from RPC/XML.pm. Fixed some cases in the new() method of RPC::XML::boolean that would have permitted invalid data. Added two convenience methods to RPC::XML::fault, called code() and string(), that fetch the faultCode and faultString member values as native Perl values. The RPC::XML::base64 class was using the wrong container tags in the as_string method. Clarified and expanded some of the documentation in RPC/XML/Server.pm. Adjusted the PREREQ_PM hash in Makefile.PL so that it correctly looks for LWP, and also looks for File::Spec 0.8 or newer (needed to ensure that the splitpath() method is available). Cleaned up the load-tests (t/00_load.t) to use the Test harnessing package. Added test suites for the RPC::XML data classes (t/10_data.t, 96 tests) and the RPC::XML::Parser container-class (t/20_parser.t, 7 tests). 0.28 Sun Oct 7 21:27:39 PDT 2001 Found a subtle-but-nasty bug in the handling of RPC::XML::string objects. Thanks to Dominic Mitchell <email@example.com> for pointing me in the right direction. Started down the path of making the suite as a whole geared more towards real use than illustrative example. The XML data-classes now no longer use indention (or any superfluous whitespace) in their stringification. This shortened the code quite a bit, and will also mean shorter messages. This could not have been done cleanly without the tests in t/10_data.t. Extracted the method-manipulation code into a new class, called RPC::XML::Method. This should make method-sharing easier, and pull a lot of method-specific code out of RPC::XML::Server and Apache::RPC::Server. Clarified some issues in the new() constructor of the Apache::RPC::Server class, and also changed the calling convention. It no longer treats the first few arguments in any special way at all. The arguments are all consistently taken as option/value pairs, just as with RPC::XML::Server. The documentation relflects this. This may break things built on the old style, but in the long run it should prove much better.
