XML-RPC and PHP5

P: n/a
Hi,

I would like to use PHP5 to interact with an XML-RPC web service. I've
noticed a number of libraries on the net however many are out of date
and not specific to PHP5.

Could anybody please recommend the best way to use XML-RPC and PHP5?

Thanks in advance.

I don't know if there's a PHP5-only library out there - I am guessing not.
Is there any reason why you are looking for PHP5-only implementation? Do
you absolutely need interfaces, or exceptions, or abstract classes in your
XML-RPC library?

There's a list of XML-RPC libraries (if you haven't seen it yet) at:
http://www.xmlrpc.com/directory/1568/implementations

Obviously, you would have already checked out:
http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.xmlrpc.php
although this is still marked as experimental - I don't know why.

If you don't like any of them, implement your own - it's not that hard. I
did it virtually from scratch (client only) with ActiveLink PHP XML
package:

Feel free to check it out.
