in thread using jabber for RPC or inter-server-communication
yea - i did a RPC-via-mysql prototype once, too, but somehow it felt clumsy, since i had a cronjob checking whether there was anything to do since the last run.
i'm looking for the most generic/extenable/scalable connection-type out there, that's why i'm looking at jabber (AFAIK it was designed with these goals (but a different application in) mind)
do you really think that jabber is less reliable than some other form of inter-box communication? as far as i can see, messages either arrive or they don't (i doubt unterminated XML is marked as 'received'), and the risk of a corrupted message seems negiable, i hope.
am i missing something?
