Registration and Discovery

The following illustration depicts a possible business cycle of a resource description used as an argument to a server:

  • Creation of the resource description, containing a description of the a supplier capability and URI reference to the server;
  • registration of the resource description under a general marketplace registry;
  • discovery of the capability under a general market directory in the form of a disclosure instance;
  • subsequent referral of the description to vertical domain marketplace;
  • discovery of the disclosure under the vertical marketplace;
  • application of the resulting disclosure instance as an argument to a server

Server applications (processors) can take advantage of referral information in Disclosure chains as part of sophisticated applications supporting referral reward schemes and market site value assessment.
