semantically transparent

From Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1 (1999-06-15) | Glossary for this source

A cache behaves in a "semantically transparent" manner, with respect to a particular response, when its use affects neither the requesting client nor the origin server, except to improve performance. When a cache is semantically transparent, the client receives exactly the same response (except for hop-by-hop headers) that it would have received had its request been handled directly by the origin server.
service semantics

From Web Services Glossary (2004-02-11) | Glossary for this source

The semantics of a service is the behavior expected when interacting with the service. The semantics expresses a contract (not necessarily a legal contract) between the provider entity and the requester entity. It expresses the effect of invoking the service. A service semantics may be formally described in a machine readable form, identified but not formally defined, or informally defined via an out of band agreement between the provider and the requester entity.
