Difference between current version and current version:

At line 1 added 84 lines.
JSPWiki comes with a XML-RPC interface. For more information, see:
* [http://www.xmlrpc.com/]
* [JSPWiki:WikiRPCInterface]
!!XML-RPC Standard API
Here is now the API as of v1.6.12 (the command prefix being ''wiki.'').
The default URL for this API is <your-wiki-url>/RPC2
* __array getRecentChanges( Date timestamp )__: Get list of changed pages since
''timestamp'', which should be in UTC. The result is an array, where each
element is a struct:
** ''name'' (string) : Name of the page. The name is UTF-8 with URL
encoding to make it ASCII.
** ''lastModified'' (date) : Date of last modification, in UTC.
** ''author'' (string) : Name of the author (if available). Again, name is
UTF-8 with URL encoding.
** ''version'' (int) : Current version.
* A page MAY be specified multiple times. A page MAY NOT be specified multiple
times with the ''same'' modification date.
* __int getRPCVersionSupported()__: Returns 1 with this version of the JSPWiki API.
* __base64 getPage( String pagename )__: Get the raw Wiki text of page, latest
version. Page name __must__ be UTF-8, with URL encoding. Returned value is a
binary object, with UTF-8 encoded page data.
* __base64 getPageVersion( String pagename, int version )__: Get the raw Wiki
text of page. Returns UTF-8, expects UTF-8 with URL encoding.
* __base64 getPageHTML( String pagename )__: Return page in rendered HTML.
Returns UTF-8, expects UTF-8 with URL encoding.
* __base64 getPageHTMLVersion( String pagename, int version )__: Return page
in rendered HTML, UTF-8.
* __array getAllPages()__: Returns a list of all pages. The result is an array
of strings, again UTF-8 in URL encoding.
* __struct getPageInfo( string pagename )__ : returns a struct with elements
** ''name'' (string): the canonical page name, URL-encoded UTF-8.
** ''lastModified'' (date): Last modification date, UTC.
** ''author'' (string): author name, URL-encoded UTF-8.
** ''version'' (int): current version
* __struct getPageInfoVersion( string pagename, int version )__ : returns a
struct just like plain ''getPageInfo()'', but this time for a specific
* __array listLinks( string pagename )__: Lists all links for a given page.
The returned array contains structs, with the following elements:
** ''page'' (string) : The page name or URL the link is to.
** ''type'' (int) : The link type. This is a string, with the following
possible values:
*** "external" : The link is an external hyperlink
*** "local" : This is a local Wiki name for hyperlinking
As you can see, all data is returned in a ''base64'' -type in UTF-8
encoding, regardless of what JSPWiki preference actually is. Also,
all incoming or outcoming strings are really UTF-8, but they have been
URL-encoded so that the XML-RPC requirement of ASCII is fulfilled.
!!The UTF-8 API
This is exactly as the upper API, except that ALL strings should be
encoded in UTF-8. Also, instead of base64 type, all methods returning
page data return UTF-8 format strings.
This does break the XML-RPC spec somewhat, but for ease of use I think
it is important to serve both models. Use which one you like :-).
The default URL for the UTF-8 XML-RPC API is
All methods which handle a page in any way can return a Fault. Current fault
codes are:
* 1 : No such page was found.
