This page contains a list of service types that have been specified in a Yadis Resource Descriptor (in alphabetical order). As anybody can define their own Yadis service types, this list is necessarily incomplete; it may be helpful nevertheless.

Minimum LID Minimum requirements for a URL to be a LID URL, Optional No

Authors and developers: add the service types for your Yadis-compatible specifications here!

Some hints:

  • The "Service Type URI" is the content of the Type-element in the Service-element
  • In "Use" describe in a word or a few what your service is good for
  • For "Requires URL" enter either "Yes" if a server must be specified or "No" if this functionality can be executed on the original Yadis URI or at some known centralized server.
  • For "Own Namespace" enter either "None" if no additional elements are introduced to the XRD, "Optional" if a namespace is present but not required for basic functionality or "Required" if service only works with additional elements. The namespace URI and element listing should be found in the specification on the website of the service.
