Forum OpenACS Q&A: Anybody written xmlrpc::httpspost ?
I'm doing some work with the xml-rpc package and so far so good (many thanks to Dave Bauer and Vinod Kurup for creating it). I need a https version of xmlrpc::httppost so before I roll my own, I thought I'd check if anybody has already written one? I guess it would need to call ns_httpsopen.
Did you get a chance to write the xmlrpc::httpspost yet? if so, can you send me a copy of the code ?
no, I didn't start that work yet as the client postponed the job. I'm still hoping to do it later this year. I hope it should be a straightforward matter of replacing the call to ns_httpopen with ns_httpsopen (which comes with ns_openssl). The part I'm unsure of is whether the headers need to change.
sorry, I can't be of more help.
If you do write it, please comment back here with how you got on.
all the best,
