XML-RPC and ColdFusion

Roger Benningfield of JournURL has created a nice component interface for using XML-RPC with ColdFusion MX. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m about to. I will let you know what I find. You can find information on his project here:


Thanks for this contribution to the ColdFusion community, Roger. This has the potential to save a lot of people a lot of time.

    Er… oops. I just noticed a boo-boo that slipped into the CFC before I ZIPped it up and posted it. My apologies to those who have downloaded it only to see it barf on first use.(The fixed version is available here.)If you’d rather fix your e…

    As Roger mentions, get the fixed version, or fix the CFC yourself. This had me scratching my head for a few minutes. Once I changed the access attributes, though, it worked great!

  3. Christian: First, you’re welcome. I’m going to try and write up a little tutorial for it later today… something simple, like pinging weblogs.com. Enough to give folks ideas, at least. I’m also working on releasing the code to JournURL itself (free for non-commercial use), which will demonstrate some of the more interesting uses of XML-RPC.Second, again, sorry ’bout the access attribute screw up. I was playing around with a few things and apparently forgot to clean up after my experiments.

    Has there been any more development or info about this. I’m starting to look at what kind of effort would be involved in order to have my CF based blogging app (www.countersinkdg.com) updatedable via a tool like BlogJet, which is a software app.More importantly, since I’m selling an “easy to setup” solution, could this be quickly and easily set up if I write the code right?Thoughts? Links? Pointers?Thanks!
