[[HOME_NETWORK_TF] Priority of Application Communications


As I commented in the last teleconference, I think that the requirement of Application Communications should be high priority.

I believe that it is important for the Web echo system to take in account of Application Communication via home network as well as Service Communication. As nobody denies, the HTML5 in wide sense is not just a presentation language, but also a application platform. If the W3C standardizes a solution that an application discovers and communicates services running on other devices on the home network. The solution should also consider the case of the communication with applications running on other devices. I think the direct link communications via home network can leverage the web technologies and will create new types of application which mashes up Web and home networked devices.

Actually I have a concern that only service discovery and service communication will be discussed at next step due to the priority. Since both use cases are similar, I suggest that WG will discuss a technical solutions by taking in count of both of requirements in the same priority. The approach will avoid the solutions will differ completely.

I have realize that the a set of requirements should be high priority.

Any question and comment?
Thank you.
