2nd listing

The description of the Host header is misleading. According to section 14.23 of RFC 2068, the HTTP/1.1 standard, Host referers to the (perhaps virtual) host receiving the HTTP request, not making it.

Example 2-2 - Setting up a Java XML-RPC server (continued)

After the variable 'server' is initialized as a new WebServer, the author did not include the call to start(), and thus the example simply terminates without creating an XML-RPC listening process on a user supplied TCP port. A simple call to server.start() will rectify the problem. Lines 2-4 of the code sample NOW READ: WebServer server = new WebServer(Integer.parseInt(args[0])); server.start(); System.out.println("Started successfully.");
