Actually I have a code in PHP that does XMLRPC and a new CentOS installation
crashes PHP without any given reason (glib error on an existed code that
works on other servers), and I prefer to use something stable and fast
rather then something that is not, because I do not have a lot of time to
make things work properly (the life of freelancing).

I remembered that FPC have an XMLRPC generator that allow me to just focus
at the task I require, and wanted to use it, but the generator could not be
compiled because of the missing unit.

I still do not understand (at all) how fpWeb works, and all the examples
works with JSON only (I wish I could use it, but the spec files of my client
uses XML-RPC), and even Lazarus is unable to properly work with it (some
files are missing even after adding fpWeb package to Lazarus), so it does
not help much :(

For now I'll add another JVM running and make it a server (because I can do
it very quickly) but when I'll have more time to learn fpWeb I would really
want to move away from Java + PHP in this cases to FPC in my client
production servers.
