XML-RPC introspection preliminary proposal

Do you mean something like the dictionary you get with Apple scripting? If so, then I agree this would be a tremendous addition to XML-RPC.
More explicitly, I'd like to see an XML-RPC convention for querying a server as to what methods it supports, and what the argument formats for these methods are. The guts of a response might look something like:
search.userland.com 80 searchEngine.index The title of the page URL The text of the page, base64 encoded The name of the site that contains the page The URL of the home page of the site that contains the page true if page can be indexed ...
I imagine the
tags should be optional.
This is very off-the-top-of-my-head as you can see by the fact that the thing above is just XML and not a valid/complete XML-RPC response. Neither have I suggested what the request should look like. I'm sure others with more XML-RPC experience have ideas...
There are responses to this message:
