Alvis Architecture: Protocols 2
- P1 between client and Alvis node could be either:
- User-oriented HTML over HTTP, for a web browser.
- Web-service presented over HTTP, for a portal.
- Other RPC candidates for P2, P3 and P4 include:
- Our own non-SOAP XML-over-HTTP protocol.
- Sun's RPC (if implementations are free)
- Not a proprietary technology like Microsoft's
- Crawler could use the same RPC mechanism as P2, P3 and P4
instead of HTTP PUT.
