CrossTech: Search Web Service

While the OASIS Search Web Services TC is currently working towards reconciling SRU and OpenSearch, I thought it would be useful to share here a simple graphic outlining how a search web service for structured search might be architected.

Basically there are two views of this search web service (described in separate XML description files and discoverable through autodiscovery links added to HTML pages):

* OpenSearch
* SRU (Search and Retrieve by URL)
