XML-RPC and Mozilla (and other coolness)

Friday May 5th, 2000

Martijn Pieters has checked in a scriptable XML-RPC client component into the tree. It can be enabled by building with

--with-extensions="default xml-rpc"

Check out this bug for more information, or this introductory article at XML.com by Edd Dumbill.

There are a lot of other cool things coming into the builds that you'll want to keep an eye out for. Back and forward button history lists. Message Filters. Skin install support and switching. All this and more will be coming in before the middle of May, according to the latest schedule. We'll let you know. Check out the build bar for the latest info on the daily builds.


#10 Incoming or outgoing?

Does the component allow for outgoing or incoming calls? Assuming that we stuck a simple http server thread onto Mozilla would it be possible to drive Mozilla through the server using XML-RPC calls?

Would this pose a security risk?

Could Mozilla 1.1 use XML-RPC to split each browser window into a separate process for extra robustness, co-ordinating via XML-RPC?
