The AtomPub Multipart Media Resource Creation Internet Draft [AtomMultipart] defines how an Atom Publishing Protocol collection may process multipart/related requests and how a service announces that it accepts multipart/relatedentities. This document adds a short additional extension to that draft for supporting the delivery of packaged content in the same way.
This specification defines a set of extensions to the Atom Publishing Protocol [RFC5023] to support the transfer and recovery of content in scholarly systems. We will refer to a service which complies to this extension to AtomPub as a SWORD "server" throughout the course of this document.
The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].
All extensions are defined within the namespace:
This document uses the prefix sword for the namespace name.
The AtomPub namespace is:
This document uses the prefix app for the namespace name.
The Atom Syndication Format namespace is:
This document uses the prefix atom for the namespace name.
This section documents extensions to the Multipart Representations of the deposit.
Further to the requirements laid out in [AtomMultipart] the Entry Part MUST include a Content-Disposition header of type attachment and name parameter of atom:
Content-Disposition: attachment; name=atom
The Media Part MUST include a Content-Disposition header of type attachment and name parameter of payload. It MAY also include a filename parameter:
Content-Disposition: attachment; name=payload; filename=example.zip
The Media Part MAY supply a Packaging header [SWORD001] providing the URI of the packaging format used in the payload.
