Proposed media type registration: application/wsdl+xml

From: David Booth <dbooth@w3.org>
Date: Mon, 04 Oct 2004 12:06:02 -0400
To: ietf-types@iana.org
Cc: ietf-xml-mime@imc.org, www-ws-desc@w3.org
Message-Id: <1096905962.3417.103.camel@nc6000.w3.org>

The proposed registration below is for a media type
"application/wsdl+xml" for use with WSDL 2.0 documents.
The registration will be requested on behalf
of the W3C Web Services Description Working Group.
WSDL 2.0 documents are used to describe Web services.
The specification of the WSDL 2.0 language itself
is available at http://www.w3.org/TR/wsdl20 .
This media type definition appears in
http://www.w3.org/TR/wsdl20#ietf-draft , which will
be updated as necessary.  (The version below is the most
recent.)

This proposed registration is for community review and
will be submitted to the IESG for review, approval, and
registration with IANA at a later stage.

The Last Call period for WSDL 2.0 ends 4 October 2004.
However, because of this late notification, the deadline
for comments on the media type registration has been
extended to 18 October 2004.

	section 3.2, as applied
	to the WSDL document infoset.

Security considerations:

	section 10.

Interoperability considerations:
	There are no known interoperability issues.

	and [WSDL 2.0 Bindings]
	( http://www.w3.org/TR/wsdl20-bindings ).

Applications which use this media type:
	No known applications currently use this media
	type.

Additional information:

	Magic number(s):
		In general, the same as for application/xml
		[RFC 3023]

		element of the returned object will be
		<wsdl:description>, where "wsdl" as any
		namespace prefix that maps to a WSDL 2.0

		Core Language]
		( http://www.w3.org/TR/wsdl20 ).
