Dear all,


According to my action item (ACTION-187 Create a Web IDL specification to
the generic GET Method) I hereby sent the Web IDL specification of such a
method (open for discussion). This specification is based on the current
strawman API design [1]


module mawg {

                interface MediaResource {


                               // Generic Get method

                               object[] getProperty(in propertyName, in
optional DOMString sourceFormat, in optional DOMString subtype, in optional
DOMString language, in optional DOMstring fragment );



                                DOMString[] getPropertyNamesWithValues(in
optional DOMString sourceFormat, in optional DOMString language, in optional
DOMString fragment);

                               DOMString[] getSourceFormatsWithValues(in
optional DOMString language);

                               DOMString getOriginalData(in DOMString


//Method for retrieval of the reason of an error

                               DOMString getDiagnosis();




I didn't know what the appropriate place would be for this updated
definition. Do we create an API for Media Resource 1.1? And where should it
be placed (Drafts in WG Space, Drafts in development, .)?
