HHH.2 Web Services Implementation

The implementation architecture has to maximize interoperability, preserve or improve performance and minimize storage overhead.

The Web Services technologies have been selected to:

  1. be firewall friendly and supporting security,

  2. be supported by and interoperable between multiple development environments, and

  3. have sufficient performance for both large and small text and for binary data.

The WADO-RS response will be provided as a list of XML and/or binary instances in a multipart/related response. The type of response depends on the media types listed in the Accept header.

The STOW-RS response is a standard HTTP status line and possibly an XML response message body. The meaning of the success, warning, or failure statuses are defined in PS3.18.
