Little bit tricky to try out as testers need to guess what all the missing code is. Also, for this kind of code demonstration, rather than directions for commenting/uncommenting and relying on the tester to restart the server between trails, provide different methods or even different classes.

But there is no extra transactional framework for XML-RPC clients (which your example has). Or for that matter acting as an XML-RPC server nested within some external transaction (which your example has). Either design to avoid this or get your hands dirty with transactions. Some starting points for examples would include any of the relational database adapters. Also in the same space is MaildropHost. michael _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
