   RE: [xml-dev] parser maintains state?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

It depends on the industry standard being used.  In RosettaNet, the Receipt
Acknowledge document that is sent in response to an action document (like a
PO for instance) contains just enough information to allow the sender of the
PO to tie the RA to the originating PO.  This includes but is not limited to
things like:  PIP IID and Document IID.  It does not contain a complete copy
of the originating PO.

This "protocol handshaking" is defined on a case by case basis and probably
is not uniform.  XML is simply the format...it does not dictate this

I have been told it is an industry standard that an XML reply should always
include all the data that came in the XML request, and therefore we should
do so in our application. I was not aware that there was any standardization
on this issue, and would like to know what others on this list thought. Is
it your impression that it is an industry standard to do so? I guess by
industry I mean the IT industry, although we are in the transportation
industry here. Thank you for your time, Wendi
