Communication layer

The communication layer provides an interface to distribute DIVERCITY's, and third party, applications. It is connected to the transaction manager that controls the user rights and authorisation.

The main innovation of the communication layer is that it is based on new Internet technologies that provide:
Secure communication.

High compatibility with firewall/proxies.

The communication layer is based on SOAP protocol (a network protocol based on XML format).

The communication layer is a stand-alone layer that can be used by any application (so long as it has the appropriate interface) to communicate either in a client/server or in a peer-to-peer schema.

The first protocol will be build upon the main framework.

This layer is not restricted to the construction domain and can be useful for any distributed project.
