11.21 SimpleXMLRPCServer -- Basic XML-RPC server

The SimpleXMLRPCServer module provides a basic server framework for XML-RPC servers written in Python. Servers can either be free standing, using SimpleXMLRPCServer, or embedded in a CGI environment, using CGIXMLRPCRequestHandler.


class SimpleXMLRPCServer( addr[, requestHandler[, logRequests]])

Create a new server instance. The requestHandler parameter should be a factory for request handler instances; it defaults to SimpleXMLRPCRequestHandler. The addr and requestHandler parameters are passed to the SocketServer.TCPServer constructor. If logRequests is true (the default), requests will be logged; setting this parameter to false will turn off logging. This class provides methods for registration of functions that can be called by the XML-RPC protocol.

class CGIXMLRPCRequestHandler( )
Create a new instance to handle XML-RPC requests in a CGI environment. New in version 2.3.
class SimpleXMLRPCRequestHandler( )
Create a new request handler instance. This request handler supports POST requests and modifies logging so that the logRequests parameter to the SimpleXMLRPCServer constructor parameter is honored.
