Subject: Questions on RIM and RS.
Hi, Here are a few more questions I had. I would be grateful if someone could clarify them. The first 2 are significant enough that they are holding up my POC implementation. [RIM-0.60:276] If ExtrinsicObject captures metadata for content whose type is unknown to the Registry and ExternalLink stores the URI to content that is external to the Registry, what interface in RIM captures metadata for content which is stored in the Registry and whose type is known to the Registry? [RS-0.88:1795-97] This definition of ExtrinsicObject contradicts Registry.dtd. A more fundamental question: is it a good idea to return repository content within the body of the XML response rather than including such content as MIME body parts in the output document? After all, when registry content is input into the Registry, it is contained in MIME body parts, together with the SOAP:Envelope header and the SubmitObjectsRequest. [RS-0.88:1782-85] What purpose was RegistryPackage, WithdrawnObject and ExternalItem meant to serve? These are not present in RIM. [RS-0.88:1790] How is repositoryURL different from contentURI (in ExtrinsicObject, as defined on 2760)? Thanks, Sanjay. ===== Sanjay J.
