[05:17:02] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Sheng_Gradilla
[05:29:33] <Sheng_Gradilla> k, for the logs...
[05:30:18] <Sheng_Gradilla> with the addition of a new developer to the team, the planning phase is finally getting somewhere
[05:30:50] <Sheng_Gradilla> we decided to do a library for handling the communications
[05:31:58] <Sheng_Gradilla> we decided that the messages will be in XML
[05:32:13] <Sheng_Gradilla> this library will be for general purpose, not just for this project
[05:33:50] <Sheng_Gradilla> the idea is to create a simple API for sending, receiving, validating and parsing XML messages, with SSL support, platform-independent, and which lets you use the XML and socket library you prefer
[05:34:14] <Sheng_Gradilla> in other words, a wrapper to such libraries
[05:35:38] <Sheng_Gradilla> much like the way SDL works
[05:36:51] <Sheng_Gradilla> current plans include support for SocketW, socket++, SDL_net, OpenSSL, and libxml2
[05:37:07] <Sheng_Gradilla> more will be added on the way
[05:49:35] <Sheng_Gradilla> this library will be the first step
[05:49:51] <Sheng_Gradilla> the server will be the second
[05:50:09] <Sheng_Gradilla> last will be the client

[16:59:57] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Sheng_Gradilla
[16:59:57] <wjp> hi
[17:00:53] <Sheng_Gradilla> how are you doing?
[17:01:10] <wjp> hardly got any sleep last night... so pretty tired :-)
[17:01:52] <Sheng_Gradilla> nu5 is moving at last :P
[17:02:16] <wjp> cool
[17:02:38] <Sheng_Gradilla> some info on this channel's logs :P
[17:03:41] <wjp> hm, are you sure such a library doesn't already exist?
[17:04:01] <wjp> sounds a bit like xml-rpc
[17:04:25] <Sheng_Gradilla> we searched around
[17:04:42] <Sheng_Gradilla> no warranty that we may have overlooked something, though :P
[17:06:03] <Sheng_Gradilla> "It's remote procedure calling using HTTP as the transport and XML as the encoding."
[17:08:59] <wjp> it might not be applicable; it's just what came to mind while reading the logs
[17:10:02] <wjp> (since it sounds like RPC through XML :-) )

[17:13:02] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Sheng_Gradilla
[17:13:49] <Sheng_Gradilla> well, the new team mate has done a lot of work on web services and XML stuff
[17:14:02] <Sheng_Gradilla> I am sure he knows about XML-RPC
[17:18:15] <wjp> yeah, probably
