5.1 Introduction

This standard defines two mechanisms, each with their own choreography, for exchanging Musical Work and Recording information using this standard.

The choreography for the Bulk Feed is depicted below. The exchange of files defined in the Bulk Feed shall use SFTP using the naming convention defined in Clause 5.3 of this standard.

Figure 1 – Choreography of the Bulk Communication of Work and Recording Metadata Standard

In this standard no acknowledgement message is included in the choreography, as there is no need for the Feed Provider to receive a feed back. If the recpients of information using this standard need in the future to communicate to the sender that the files have been downloaded or to provide a summary of what data has been extracted from the files or to report errors, such messages may be created in later versions.
