i’m investigating the possibility of writing a SOAP or XML-RPC client in javascript, to use the JSRS transfer mechanism. complexities abound:

  1. javascript cross-frame scripting limitations would mean that i’d have to broker any transactions to foreign servers through the server

  2. the XML parsing would be a real beast to implement completely in javascript on the client side since i would want to get this to work across various browsers

  3. the asynchronous nature of JSRS would not fit well

a thought i have had re the first point leads me towards just having jsrs act as a broker to a SOAP or XML-RPC proxy running on the server.

the asynch problem remains, but that’s worth pursuing for now. yeah, that’s it. sure. i’m glad we had this chat.
