Of course the client will need to fetch information from the caretaker extension. Is there already an infrastructure to do that, i.e. XMLRPC? Note: I would like to get the data from caretaker, not caretaker_instance.

Hi Pascal,

since all members of the caretaker core team use iPhones we are very
interested in what you are planning. Can you describe which feature you
are planning?

The caretaker_instance extension already has some sort of encrypted
method calling implemented. For security reasons it only executes
previously registered methods (we call this remote operations). The list
of remote operations can be extended by extensions so you can add all
the operations you need in an extension which afterwards would be
installed on the caretaker-server. The request-building / -decryption
etc. happens in the caretaker_instance extension so you will find
examples there.

Regards, Martin
