XML-RPC is a simple, portable way to make remote procedure calls over HTTP. It can be used with Perl, Java, Python, C, C++, PHP and many other programming languages. Implementations are available for Unix, Windows and the Macintosh.

This tutorial compares XML-RPC to other protocols (e.g., CORBA), and shows how it can be used from several different languages (see list above). It gives code examples implementing clients, and servers (using CGI).

It may be worth mentioning that distributed processing (i.e., RPC) can be implemented inside a langugae framework. For an interesting approach see Ada (LRM Annex E; Rationale).
