Provided by module: Tags: Additional RXML tags

Perform a synchronous XML-RPC call. The content specifies the call parameters, and the result of the tag is the return parameters (if the call is successful). The result is expressed using the same kind of tags that specifies the parameters (this is a more compact and rxml-friendly format than the actual XML-RPC form; see below).

If the call fails on a high level, i.e. if the remote side returns a fault, then the result is empty and the fault code and string gets stored in the variables specified by the "fault-code" and "fault-string" attributes (if they exist).

If the call fails on a low level, i.e. connection error or due to some kind of syntactic error in the result, then an RXML run error is thrown.

The boolean status is set to true if the call is successful, false otherwise.

URL to the server to make the call to.


The name of the method.


If this attribute is present, the variable it specifies will receive the fault code if the call fails.


If this attribute is present, the variable it specifies will receive the fault string if the call fails.
