Implementing a simple XML-RPC client and server

The OCaml Journal just published an article explaining how both producers and consumers of remote procedure calls can be written in OCaml:

"XML-RPC is a protocol for remote procedure calls that is built upon the XML format. Method calls are packaged up by the client as an XML request sent via HTTP to the server whereupon action is taken and a response is packaged up and returned in the same way. This article describes how a complete client-server pair using XML-RPC can be designed and built from scratch in OCaml using only the XML-Light and OcamlNet libraries..."
