We're using XML over HTTP to execute functions in remote perl modules and exchanging data structures with pl2xml <-> xml2pl. I find there's too much overhead here and would like a more bare bones approach.
XML/ HTTP replacement ?
All I'm looking to do is this:
[local] instruct remote server to execute a particular function from a specific perl module
[remote] execute function (which typically involves some pgsql data fetching routine) and return the data as a perl hashref for example (or as a storeable object)
I would like to restrict the available interaction to a set of predetermined functions so using something like perlSSH is not a good option. I think some type of socket based communication is what I'm looking for.
