Documentation of the different operation primitives that the protocol describes
Common for all operations is that they follow the flow described in Message flow and that all operations are targeted at a specific Collection, the only exception is the GetStatus operation as it regards components.
Single data object for get, put, delete and replace
It is only possible to perform get,put,replace and delete operations on a single file.
The reason for this choice is to have a simple protocol. Requests on multiple data objects would complicate data transmission of the different files as well as error handling.
