Using the XML-RPC Remote API for Scripting the Web site

Suppose you want to set up a bunch of stereotyped analyses all at once -- how do you do it?

One way is to use Python to connect to the Web site via a XML-RPC interface.

A simple example of using this to set up a pairwise analysis is available in source:/trunk/cartwheel-clients/canal/examples/, file create-pairwise-analysis.py.

The documentation is, as usual, a bit lacking, but you can see all of the available functions in source:/trunk/cartwheel-clients/canal/test/testAPI.py.
