   RE: [xml-dev] Exposing resources/services vs hiding implementation detai

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Pardon my density.  I don't quite get this.

Is this approach (a single URI) a means to unify multiple 
services under one dispatching service (eg, receives the 
message, reads it, determines who should do the work, 
sends that on with details)?

So then, ostensibly, the discovery service keeps a list 
of services that all have one URI, somewhat like calling 
the PBX operator to get a line into a business?

How so?  I can see why the single point is better for integration -- you 
only change one message posted to one URL, as opposed to one message 
posted to "n" URL's -- not worse.  And I don't see the difference in 
scalability at all.  Can you explain?
