Abstract: The Rules-based SSDL Protocol Framework defines a collection of XML Infoset element information items that can be used to describe the messaging behaviour of a service. The framework use conditions (Boolean expressions) to precisely specify when messages can be sent and received by a service. A distributed application’s application protocol is defined by the messaging behaviour of interacting services participating in the distributed application. See also CS-TR-898, CS-TR-899, CS-TR-900, CS-TR-901, CS-TR-903.
