-----Original Message----- From: Internet-Drafts@ietf.org [mailto:Internet-Drafts@ietf.org] Sent: Monday, 2000-03-13 03:18 Subject: I-D ACTION:draft-mrose-blocks-appldesign-00.txt

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

Title : On the Design of Application Protocols Author(s) : M. Rose Filename : draft-mrose-blocks-appldesign-00.txt Pages : 27 Date : 10-Mar-00 This memo describes the design principles for the Blocks eXtensible eXchange Protocol[35] (BXXP). BXXP is a generic application protocol framework for connection-oriented, asynchronous request-response interactions. BXXP permits multiplexing of independent request/response streams over a single transport connection, supporting both textual and binary messages. To subscribe to the Blocks discussion list, send e-mail[36]; there is also a developers' site[37].

A URL for this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-mrose-blocks-appldesign-00.txt

Internet-Drafts are also available by anonymous FTP. Login with the username "anonymous" and a password of your e-mail address. After logging in, type "cd internet-drafts" and then "get draft-mrose-blocks-appldesign-00.txt".

A list of Internet-Drafts directories can be found in http://www.ietf.org/shadow.html or ftp://ftp.ietf.org/ietf/1shadow-sites.txt

Internet-Drafts can also be obtained by e-mail.

Send a message to: mailserv@ietf.org. In the body type: "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-mrose-blocks-appldesign-00.txt". NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE" command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on how to manipulate these messages. Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the Internet-Draft.
