xmlRPC reliability issue and java server example

Postby ariemeir » Wed Jun 24, 2009 1:09 pm

Hi all ,

I'm just starting to develop client-server based on xmlrpc
from http://code.google.com/p/android-xmlrpc/
First, thanks to pskink, it's a fine piece of work he did !
And thanks for sharing it too !

What i'm a bit concerned about, is connectivity.
if i understand correctly, xmlrpc runs on top of http which is udp-based.

And as we know, udp doesn't promise reliability.
This line of reasoning leads me to believe that if i send a 1 MB byte array as a parameter,
some of the udp packets it is broken into , can get lost==>

What am i missing ? Is XMLRPC really non-reliable ? Or is there something i am overlooking ?
Another question : does anyone have a java server example to go with the pskink's xmlrpc ?
The python server runs great, but i'd like to see how things work in java .

Please advise,
