Team Comment on the XUP Submission

W3C is pleased to receive the XUP submission from MartSoft Corporation. This submission describes a SOAP-based protocol for communicating user interface events and updates over the Web. Once a session has been established between a client and server, user interface events can be passed to server-side handlers. These in turn, pass back updates to the user interface.

The submission has a direct relationship to the goals of the W3C Multimodal Interaction Activity to develop markup specifications for synchronization across multiple modalities and devices with a wide range of capabilities. The Multimodal Interaction Working Group (W3C Members only) is investigating the means to extend W3C's XML event model across the Web, as a possible basis for coupling distributed components in a multimodal system.

Next Steps

The submission will be brought to the attention of the Multimodal Interaction Working Group as input into work on using events to couple distributed components in a multimodal system. It may also be of interest to the XForms Working Group as a possible means to implement the binding to the user interface.
