Re: [Xen-users] Xen Http interface

Would be interesting if some developer could comment on this - will this be
removed soon that it's not worth documenting? Or is it so new that it's not
yet documented? ( in the latter case I'd start a wiki page to document this,
in the former this would be waste of time, I guess)
It's going away. libvirt has the best implementation of the protocol (outside of Xend) that I know of. It changes frequently and is not something that's very fun to keep up with.

We're moving to an XML-RPC based interface. The interface will be standardized and documented in future versions of Xen (hopefully in the very near future).

The wiki page XenIntro reads:

"In the past,the start() method of SrvDaemon eventually started an http
socket (8000) on which it listened to http requests. Now it does not open an
http socket on port 8000 anymore."

But I see this in Xen 3.0. So I am a bit unsure if this is what you get on
the URL mentioned above, or which "past" they mean there :)
