(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

Wow. This is my 700th post. Neat.

Anyway, I think I came up with a decent solution to being able to do xml-rpc a bit more smoothly in Cocoa - I created a class called "XMLRPCServer" which has a couple of methods like:

-(id)call:(NSString *)method withArg:(id)arg; -(id)call:(NSString *)method withArg1:(id)arg1 withArg2:(id)arg2;

... and so on.

So now I can make calls with a bit more ease like this:

XMLRPCServer *server = [XMLRPCServer serverWithURL:@"http://betty.userland.com/RPC2" handler:@"examples"]; NSString *state; = [server call:@"getStateName" withArg:[NSNumber numberWithInt:5]];

Which isn't too shabby.

I also added a method that'll call the xmlrpc server asynchronously... you just set a callback method and bang- it all works.

Cool, and close enough dangit.

I gotta make sure I don't have any memory leaks in it, and then I'll post up an example app showing this guy.
