The result transfer information model provides mechanisms to transfer results that are produced by a Server or its underlying system. The characteristics of such results is to contain meta data together with the individual results. Servers will provide the results for a certain amount of time so that Clients can receive the results using the result transfer.
The base modelling construct for the result transfer is the ResultManagementType (see Figure 1). Servers may provide several instances of that ObjectType to expose different sources of results. Each instance of ResultManagementType already can provide many results.
Instances of ResultManagementType provide optionally all available results as Variables of ResultType under the Results folder. They may generate Events of ResultReadyEventType for new created results. And they provide optional Methods to retrieve individual results or filter for specific results.
