Representation of CIM in XML

Clause 5 defines a standard for the representation of CIM elements and messages in XML. The Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a simplified subset of SGML that offers powerful and extensible data modeling capabilities. An XML document is a collection of data represented in XML. An XML schema is a grammar that describes the format of an XML document. An XML document is described as valid if it has an associated XML schema to which it conforms. The Common Information Model (CIM) is an object-oriented information model defined by the DMTF that provides a conceptual framework for describing management data.

WBEM URI Mapping

Clause 6 defines the Universal Resource Identifier (URI) format for WBEM protocols. A WBEM URI is a compact string of characters for identifying a CIM element. This document defines a mapping of CIM naming, as defined in DSP0004, to the URI syntax, as defined in RFC 3986. The URI Generic Syntax standard and the Universal Resource Locators standards by the IETF provide a framework for identifying resources. 1.3 SM CLP-to-CIM Common Mapping Clause 7 describes the common requirements for mapping commands, command options, command option argument values, and command target properties to elements of the CIM. This standard defines the basis for implementations' conformance to the Command Line Protocol (CLP) specifications.

WS-Management CIM Binding

Clause 8 describes how to use the Web Services for Management (WS-Management) protocol to communicate with resources modeled with CIM and exposed through the XML schema mapping described by WS-CIM.

WS-CIM Mapping

Clause 9 describes a protocol-independent mapping of CIM models to XML Schema, WSDL fragments, and metadata fragments. The features of CIM that are within the scope of this standard correspond to a subset of the features of CIM that are defined in the CIM Infrastructure Specification (DSP0004). Another goal of clause 9 is to allow the most expedient use of current Web Services (WS) infrastructure as a foundation for implementing a WS-CIM compliant system. This standard has been written to leverage the existing Web Services standards and best practices that are currently widely deployed and supported by Web Services infrastructure.

The following XML Schema, WSDL, and metadata is defined for the Common Information Model (CIM):

• Namespace URIs and the XML Schema definitions for CIM classes and their properties, qualifiers, and methods. The mapping of CIM classes covers regular, association, exception, and indication classes.

• WSDL message definitions for CIM methods. The WSDL mapping supports WSDL version 1.1.

• WSDL portType operation definitions for CIM methods

• Metadata fragments for CIM qualifiers
