Process Documentation Recording Protocol

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)

Related documents define schemas to be used for documentation about the execution of a process, process documentation, and introduce a provenance store, a type of Web Service with the capability for storing and giving access to process documentation. In particular, process documentation has a defined schema, the p-structure, which clients use when creating process documentation to be recorded. In this document, we specify an interface, the P-assertion Recording Protocol (PReP) , by which a recording actor can communicate with a provenance store in order to record process documentation. This primarily takes the form of an abstract WSDL interface defining messages to be accepted and produced by a provenance store.
