  1:mod:`DocXMLRPCServer` --- Self-documenting XML-RPC server
  2==========================================================

  4.. module:: DocXMLRPCServer
  5   :synopsis: Self-documenting XML-RPC server implementation.
  6.. moduleauthor:: Brian Quinlan <brianq@activestate.com>
  7.. sectionauthor:: Brian Quinlan <brianq@activestate.com>

  9.. note::
 10   The :mod:`DocXMLRPCServer` module has been merged into :mod:`xmlrpc.server`
 11   in Python 3.0.  The :term:`2to3` tool will automatically adapt imports when
 12   converting your sources to 3.0.
 13
 14
 15.. versionadded:: 2.3
 16
 17The :mod:`DocXMLRPCServer` module extends the classes found in
 18:mod:`SimpleXMLRPCServer` to serve HTML documentation in response to HTTP GET
 19requests. Servers can either be free standing, using :class:`DocXMLRPCServer`,
 20or embedded in a CGI environment, using :class:`DocCGIXMLRPCRequestHandler`.
 21
 22
 23.. class:: DocXMLRPCServer(addr[, requestHandler[, logRequests[, allow_none[,  encoding[, bind_and_activate]]]]])
 24
 25   Create a new server instance. All parameters have the same meaning as for
 26   :class:`SimpleXMLRPCServer.SimpleXMLRPCServer`; *requestHandler* defaults to
 27   :class:`DocXMLRPCRequestHandler`.
 28
 29
 30.. class:: DocCGIXMLRPCRequestHandler()
 31
 32   Create a new instance to handle XML-RPC requests in a CGI environment.
 33
 34
 35.. class:: DocXMLRPCRequestHandler()
 36
 37   Create a new request handler instance. This request handler supports XML-RPC
 38   POST requests, documentation GET requests, and modifies logging so that the
 39   *logRequests* parameter to the :class:`DocXMLRPCServer` constructor parameter is
 40   honored.

 45DocXMLRPCServer Objects
 46-----------------------
 47
 48The :class:`DocXMLRPCServer` class is derived from
 49:class:`SimpleXMLRPCServer.SimpleXMLRPCServer` and provides a means of creating
 50self-documenting, stand alone XML-RPC servers. HTTP POST requests are handled as
 51XML-RPC method calls. HTTP GET requests are handled by generating pydoc-style
 52HTML documentation. This allows a server to provide its own web-based
 53documentation.
 54
 55
 56.. method:: DocXMLRPCServer.set_server_title(server_title)
 57
 58   Set the title used in the generated HTML documentation. This title will be used
 59   inside the HTML "title" element.
 60
 61
 62.. method:: DocXMLRPCServer.set_server_name(server_name)
 63
 64   Set the name used in the generated HTML documentation. This name will appear at
 65   the top of the generated documentation inside a "h1" element.
 66
 67
 68.. method:: DocXMLRPCServer.set_server_documentation(server_documentation)
 69
 70   Set the description used in the generated HTML documentation. This description
 71   will appear as a paragraph, below the server name, in the documentation.
 72
 73
 74DocCGIXMLRPCRequestHandler
 75--------------------------
 76
 77The :class:`DocCGIXMLRPCRequestHandler` class is derived from
 78:class:`SimpleXMLRPCServer.CGIXMLRPCRequestHandler` and provides a means of
 79creating self-documenting, XML-RPC CGI scripts. HTTP POST requests are handled
 80as XML-RPC method calls. HTTP GET requests are handled by generating pydoc-style
 81HTML documentation. This allows a server to provide its own web-based
 82documentation.
 83
 84
 85.. method:: DocCGIXMLRPCRequestHandler.set_server_title(server_title)
 86
 87   Set the title used in the generated HTML documentation. This title will be used
 88   inside the HTML "title" element.
 89
 90
 91.. method:: DocCGIXMLRPCRequestHandler.set_server_name(server_name)
 92
 93   Set the name used in the generated HTML documentation. This name will appear at
 94   the top of the generated documentation inside a "h1" element.
 95
 96
 97.. method:: DocCGIXMLRPCRequestHandler.set_server_documentation(server_documentation)
 98
 99   Set the description used in the generated HTML documentation. This description
100   will appear as a paragraph, below the server name, in the documentation.
