Inter-platform communication


#1

Hi,

I’m trying to find a new way to achieve inter-platform communication.
I’m currently using web services to pass data between a Solaris
machine, a Windows machine and a Linux machine. I would like to find
out if ruby can help me out in any way. Does ruby implement any RMI
system? Does it have SOAP+WSDL capabilities?

Thanks,
Tiberiu

Have a look at dRb (distributed Ruby). It’s in the standard library.
It does not have SOAP/WSDL capabilities as far as I know, it uses a
Ruby specific protocol.

If you need XML-RPC or SOAP, then they’re both in the standard library
too.

Hi all,

You could also try the 9P protocol from Plan9[1]. There are at least
two Ruby implementations[2] of it and even if you won’t end up using
it, it’s definitely something worth reading.

Good luck,
Alex
