O'Reilly's own Joe Johnston writes part one of what will thankfully be a multi-part series on "Using XML-RPC for Web services" for the IBM developerWorks site.
"Creating an XML-RPC Web service with Perl is almost as easy as CGI scripting. This article will bring you up to speed on what XML-RPC is and how to use Perl's Frontier::RPC library to create simple clients and servers."
