Re: [xmlblaster-devel] Why do xml-rpc sessions w/ callbacks time out?

Do you think this is the best behaviour?

At least for my use case the callback is the only listening for published information. 
Otherwise, it never makes any client requests.

It seems strange to have to pump the client to keep it from timing out.


Regarding pyBlaster. I'm planning to rework this when my client can afford the time. I would 
like to re-examine the threaded tcp server/threadedxmlrpc server architecture. I note that it 
does *not* work with python2.3 xmlrpclib.py, you have to use the supplied xmlrpclib.py which 
appears to be from python 2.2

Are there any more notes about the architectural design decisions made during pyBlaster's 
development? I've read the source notes, which mostly describe the implementation itself, 
not *why* it was done that way.

Also, it would be nice to have several different server archictures supported, like straight 
asyncore and twisted. I'll chip away at these over the next few months unless my project 
gets cancelled.
