1.3 Protocol Overview (Synopsis)
This protocol grants a protocol client the ability to call a launcher service which converts a file from one format to another. In typical operation, the protocol client requests the load balancer service for an available launcher service, and then passes a file to this launcher service for conversion. The launcher service responds by converting the file from the original file format to the target file format and then sends the converted file to the protocol client. A typical scenario for using this protocol is a content management application that grants a user the ability to convert into web pages documents which are created by a word processor.
The following diagram shows how this protocol is used.
