14. Applications with Built-in XML-RPC Support

Several popular Linux applications include support for XML-RPC. These have already been described elsewhere, so we mostly provide pointers to articles.

14.1. Zope

Articles on using XML-RPC with Zope are available elsewhere on the web:

14.2. KDE 2.0

KDE 2.0 includes Kurt Ganroth's kxmlrpc daemon, which allows you to script KDE applications using XML-RPC.

Here's a short sample application in Python. It shows you how to connect to kxmlrpc, manipulate your KDE address book, and query the KDE trader.

If you have any other articles or example code, please see Section 15.3. We'd like to have more information on scripting KDE.
