I had a chance this past week to evaluate Apache XML-RPC, an open source Java class library for XML-RPC programming.

It's a nicely designed library that makes it trivial to create an XML-RPC server or software that makes XML-RPC calls. Remote methods are called in a manner comparable to calling any other method in Java -- XML-RPC and networking are handled by the library.

Once you have figured out which Java data types to use in remote method calls and remote methods, described in this table, it's easy to add XML-RPC support to a Java class.
