XMPP - Jabber RPC - For RS and FA

"Back in my day, we used two tin cans and some string to do Remote Procedure calls..."

Yes, there is more fun stuff to do in with XMPP than JEP-0060 PubSub

JEP-0009: Jabber-RPC

This JEP defines a method for transporting XML-RPC encoded requests and responses over Jabber/XMPP.

What does XML-RPC do? Check out this great article by Dave Winer that describes RPC.

XML RPC for Dummies

"But RPC is important, no matter what format is used, because it allows choices, you can replace a component with another one; and it opens possibilities, empowering advanced users to develop solutions with packaged software that the developers didn't anticipate."

OK, so we see how RPC is used. Now, thanks to Jabber-RPC and the great work of many developers, we can use XMPP to handle RPC calls.

Since I know you guys are dying to learn Python.. :)
