The upcoming 1.3.0 version of the XINS technology will allow requests from browsers, SOAP clients and XML-RPC. All at the same time and without the need to reconfigure or redeploy the server. The trick is an HTTP parameter “_convention” to be supplied in the request URL. When this parameter is set to “_xins-soap”, then the request is interpreted as a SOAP request. If it’s “_xins-xmlrpc” then XML-RPC is assumed.
