SMESPR is a robust, efficient, flexible and platform/language independent protocol that allows the smes kernel to export its functionality over any sort of computer networks (in particular TCP/IP). It allows for results in different formats (HTML/XML, SQL and plain feature structures are available, others may be easily added) as well as for creating and controlling graphical user interfaces from the interior of the smes world. Furthermore, any sort of access or privacy policy can be plugged into the existing protocol very easily. A prototype implementation is in use at the DFKI in several projects. This article contains the documentation of SMESPR/1.0 and out prototype implementation.
