# ECMA TR/31

Remote operations - Concepts, notation and connection-oriented mappings

1st edition, December 1985

This Ecma Technical Report describes a methodology for specification of external interactions of distributed applications. It contains:

• A statement of the requirements to be satisfied by this specification methodology (see section 2.);
• A tutorial explanation of the fundamental concepts (see section 3.);
• Definition of the specification notation (see section 4.);
• Definition of the connection-oriented service, protocol and mapping (see sections 5 and 6.);
•  Recommendations for conformance statements to be included by applications which use this methodology (see section 7.).

The methodology may be the basis for a future ECMA standard on this subject. But before that, there is a need for further study and liaison with ISO and the CCITT.
