Subject Re: xml-rpc response is not in xml-rpc format.
Date Sat, 21 Sep 2002 19:46:56 GMT
Hi Sanjeev,

If you are to send the server an XML-RPC request, but expect something 
different back (even if it's in XML) you can't use the vanilla Apache 
XML-RPC library to do that.  However, you may want to use the code from 
the library to generate your request and then write your own custom XML 
response processor to get what you ened from the server's response.

Good luck!
