Dear Felix,

I agree that in scenario 2 one could directly access the web service, I should add this as another path to the figure to make that clear.

The reason for putting the JavaScript client API into the figure is two show two options how the API could be used scriptable from a user agent, but with the logic implemented in different places. One formal issue is the specification of the API of the Web service, as there is no WSDL binding for Web IDL.

Best regards,
Werner

I agree with option 1. For option 2, I don't understand why the implementation as a web service requires a user agent and a java script library to call a service. Shouldn't that be any API in any programming languages that knows how to work with the Media Resource API? I am thinking about a scenario like metadata harvester who does the harvesting without any relation to a user interface, and wants to talk to the Media Resource API.

Appologies in advance if I missed some bits of the discussion. Except that (minor) bit, I think the figure is very good.

Best,

Felix

Dear all,

if the options outlined in the figure are agreed, I can write propose some initial text (based on the short discussion on the list after I sent the figure). Probably Chris, Wonsuk and others have things to add from their experience.

Best regards,
Werner

Dear all,
Do you agree with me to include a section in the API doc about implementation issues? I think it would be helpful for the test implementers, and it can serve as an initial effort on a Primer doc.

If so do we have volunteers to write this section? Werner has already drawn a nice figure (included).

Regards
Joakim
