The STOW-RS Service Application receives STOW requests from a remote AE. These requests are HTTP POST requests. It is associated with the local real-world activity "Store Instances". It converts these requests into internal functions to store the given SOP Instances. It returns a summary HTTP status line, including a status code and an associated textual phase, followed by an XML message indicating success, warning, or failure for each instance to the requesting remote AE.
