I just added a feature that allows my blog to “ping” (using XML-RPC) everytime I add a new post.

What is
“The core function of Weblogs.Com is a list of weblogs that have changed in the last three hours.” More information

What is XML-RPC? “It’s remote procedure calling using HTTP as the transport and XML as the encoding. XML-RPC is designed to be as simple as possible, while allowing complex data structures to be transmitted, processed and returned.” More information

How did you implement this?
I used an XML-RPC Java library from Apache. The code ended up looking like this:

XmlRpcClient xmlrpc = new XmlRpcClient(XML_RPC_URL);<br/> Vector params = new Vector ();<br/> params.addElement ("Carter's Blog");<br/> params.addElement ("");<br/> Hashtable result = (Hashtable)xmlrpc.execute("",params);<br/>
