Content Source Access

How these fit into GGIE

These use cases are part of a larger set of GGIE Use Cases being worked on by the GGIE taskforce. This page covers user cases the act of finding and accessing a content source. These use cases deal with network layer discovery and access

Abstract

This document describes use cases for the glass to glass digital video ecosystem ranging from capture through to viewing

Status of this document

This is a public working in draft collection of use cases that the GGIE task force is discussing and exploring. It has no official standing of any kind and note represent the support or consensus of any standards organization or contributor. GGIE is a taskforce of the W3C Public Web & TV Interest Group

Conventions

The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].


Use Cases

Source-Query-UC-1 Basic Query by Content identifier URI

Basic GGIE query by content URI

Extends

Nothing

Description

A user queries a content lookup service using a content URI. The content URI includes a namespace declaration for the content identifier, and a content identifier. It may have additional elements which are not shown in this example. The URI is used in a query which is sent to the content lookup service, along with optional query parameters which are not detailed here.
  1. The user application sends a query to the content lookup service
  2. The content lookup service finds the authoritative service for the namespace for the content identifier.
  3. The content lookup service sends the content lookup query to the authoritative service
  4. The authoritative lookup service returns the query results to the content lookup service
  5. The content lookup service returns the results to the user application

Actors

  • User application
  • Content Lookup Service
  • Authoritative Content Lookup Service

Dependecies

Notes

This use case represents a trivial example which highlights essential steps of: 1) Querying by content URI; 2) Using an authoritative service per namespace
In this simple use case, nothing is known about the results returned

Gaps

Content URI is not defined
Content identifier namespaces are not fully defined
Content Lookup Service query protocol does not exist

Source-Query-UC-2 Query by Content identifier URI with delegated sub-namespace

URI query with sub-namespace delegation

Extends

Source-Query-UC-1

Description

A user queries a content lookup service using a content URI. The content URI includes a namespace declaration for the content identifier, and a content identifier. It may have additional elements which are not shown in this example. The URI is used in a query which is sent to the content lookup service, along with optional query parameters which are not detailed here. Additionally, the Namespace Authority returns a reference to the delegated authority for a subdomain of it's namespace.
  1. The user application sends a query to the content lookup service
  2. The content lookup service finds the authoritative service for the namespace for the content identifier.
  3. The content lookup service sends the content lookup query to the authoritative service
  1. The authoritative lookup service returns a reference to the delegated authority for the relevant subdomain of the namespace
  1. The content lookup service sends the content lookup query to the delegated sub-namepace authoritative service
  2. The delegated sub-namepace authoritative lookup service returns the query results to the content lookup service
  3. The content lookup service returns the results to the user application

Actors

  • User application
  • Content Lookup Service
  • Authoritative Content Lookup Service

Cache UC-1 Cache Query

Extends

none

Description

A viewing device is accessing content from a source on the network. A cache exists on the network which may have some or all of the content elements. The viewing device connects to the cache and queries the cache for the content source using a URI which contains the content identifier and segment identification for the sought content element. If the content element is not in cache, the device will get the content from the original source

Cache UC-2 Cache Discovery

Extends

Cache UC-1 Cache Query

Description

A viewing device is accessing content from a source on the network. A cache exists on the local network but the device is not aware of the cache. The cache advertises itself on the local network so that it maybe discovered by devices. The device finds the cache and adds it to its list of known caches. The viewing device connects to the cache and queries the cache for the content source using a URI which contains the content identifier and segment identification for the sought content element. If the content element is not in cache, the device will get the content from the original source
