asynchronous exchange

From XML Key Management (XKMS 2.0) Requirements (2003-05-05) | Glossary for this source

An exchange where the synchronous service response is incomplete, requiring the client to perform a subsequent request at some later time. When client registration requires time consuming checks it is more practical for a client to return at a later time for a completed response, for example. For XML Key Management all requests producing asynchronous results MUST produce a synchronous response status indicating an incomplete response, such as "Pending", for example. Such responses might also provide a URL for the client to check back to obtain the complete response at a later time.
