A number of systems support hypertext functionality by storing links in link services; these links may then be superimposed on, or included into the document by the client browser. However, there is no standard protocol that allows client side tools to interoperate with link servers. The Open Hypermedia Systems (OHS) Community is therefore proposing a standard protocol called the Open Hypermedia Protocol (OHP) for client side applications to communicate with link servers for the purpose of storing, retrieving and navigating hypermedia objects. Adoption of this protocol would enable developers and researchers to re-use standard viewers including Web browsers and link servers within their systems.

Abstract

A number of systems support hypertext functionality by storing links in link services; these links may then be superimposed on, or included into the document by the client browser. However, there is no standard protocol that allows client side tools to interoperate with link servers. The Open Hypermedia Systems (OHS) Community is therefore proposing a standard protocol called the Open Hypermedia Protocol (OHP) for client side applications to communicate with link servers for the purpose of storing, retrieving and navigating hypermedia objects. Adoption of this protocol would enable developers and researchers to re-use standard viewers including Web browsers and link servers within their systems.
