[Twisted-Python] txWS !!

 Thanks a lot for your reply. The trouble is that the events I have are
triggered by a homematic CCU. The CCU does it by multicall which has not
yet been implemented in twisted servers. So, I'm running a non-twisted
xmlrpc server in a thread so that my CCU triggers the events and it's
happening too. I can see the events printed on the console too. Now, I just
want a way to write the same to sockets. Can't we connect these to txWS
factory ? Doesn't the txWS has some socket object so that we can just say


Hi Vinodh,

txWS merely lets you connect to a Twisted Factory through WebSockets.
You will still need to structure your code such that the events that you
are responding to are connected to that Factory.

It might be helpful to rewrite your XML-RPC server to use Twisted's
XML-RPC (see
http://twistedmatrix.com/documents/current/web/howto/xmlrpc.html for a
tutorial on that) and then it will be easier to hook up your events
without having to worry about threading or other blocking things.

If you're having specific problems with txWS, let me know; it's
important to us that txWS work smoothly for people using it.
