I read in Java and XML that you could do XML-RPC via a servlet. How does this happen? Does the XML-RPC still marshall the method parameters and pass to the servlet via XML? or is it somehow done via URL parameters since it is going to a servlet? Thanks Brian
Typically the XML (eg. for a SOAP packet) is passed in the body of the HTML request (where the POST parameters would go), and returned in the body of the reply. For sending complex data, SOAP-with-attachments makes use of the same multipart mime type as is used for file uploads.
