Joomla 1.5 has XML-RPC built-in

Working on a new site using Joomla 1.5 today under the Plugin Manager I found out that it has plugins for XML-RPC built right into its core. What does this mean?? Creating third party software to integrate with Joomla CMS is now going to be a piece of cake.

There are already a lot of 3rd party programs that support XML-RPC. An example is ScribeFire (which I am using to write this blog article). You could use any of these off the shelf tools to easily add articles to Joomla or edit/delete an existing article.

Something I am going to make in the near future is an iPhone app + a J2ME app that will use XML-RPC to easily add new articles to a Joomla site.
