Re: [Xen-devel] Re: Status of "management port" in 3.0?

gXenophilia hasnt been looked at in a while... weve gotten lazy with maintaining the code. If you have issues with it though, feel free to email me and ill see if i can help you. It should also be noted that it was written against the stable branch, and im not sure if it will work with 3.0 right now. As to better web services, both me and mike mccabe are working on some preliminary XMLRPC servers built into Xend. Hopefully one of use will have somthing to show for it, or at least the basic infrastructure for it soon.

been talk of a true "web services" way to do things, and in 2.x we had
the http server ports open (and documented) by default, but it seems
that currently there is no good indication of what to do.

Any idea when there will be a solid direction on what do to for the 3.0 release?

You need to specify (xend-http-server true) in xend-config.sxp as well. I don't know whether this is new. I also don't know how well supported this
interface is, and whether it will be in the future; looking at
http://mymachine:8000/xend I see things that look almost like useful
information, but that look a little bit broken too.
