Movie line of the week answer - [10:19 AM]

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets movie posterWell, well, well, our winner is an old friend. Troy Sandal is a Visio old-timer. He left Visio a couple of years back to start slinging Java for a living but stays in touch. It's nice of you to drop by Troy.

The answer is from a current movie. It's spoken by our favorite boy wizards best friend Ron Weasley in...

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

At least it wasn't a repeat!

Ok, ok I forgot... - [1:28 PM]

I had lunch with a couple of friends today and we talked a bit about my discoverable API's question. It's WSDL.

So is anyone doing this for their XML-RPC based interfaces?

Questions? - [9:43 AM]

Hey all you XML types. I have a question for you.

With the introduction of RSD I've been thinking more and more about XML. Is anyone using XML to completely describe their interaction with the Blogger API and MetaWeblog API? What I mean is does your code simple parse some hunk of XML for a description of the interface and generically dispatch it? I would think it wouldn't be too difficult to completely describe and API in XML and since XML-RPC uses standard transports one could possibly write a generic hunk of code that could be pointed to a description of the API; endpoints, methods, arguments, properties, etc.., and be able to hook-up to that interface by mapping some generic set of actions to methods regardless of the back end.

E.G. - Assuming the method to post to a weblog is defined in the generic XML descriptor as Post one could then map their Post command to that descriptor and fill in the parameters based on the description in the XML. Does that make sense or am I just rattling here?

I wish I had more time to think about and implement a sample, but unfortunately I don't. Maybe someone has already done this and I sound like I've been out of the loop for ages, then again maybe not?

Does this seem reasonable?

Good Mornin! - [8:19 AM]

I've been sippin coffee from my new caffeine coffee mug this morning while installing all the necessary software to get me back up and running, thanks again Steven!

It looks like the road to the Super Bowl is finally set! And boy-oh-boy what a setup! Raiders vs. Bucs, who could've written a better script? Gruden's old team vs. his new team. It's going to be a heck of a battle. I'm a bit torn about who I want to win. I'd like to see Tim Brown finally get a ring after all his years in a Raiders uniform but I'd also like to see Gruden finally get one. Obviously both teams have worked hard to get where they are and they deserve to be there.

Remember to tune in next Sunday, it's going to be a whopper of a game! Woo-Hoo!
