This document outlines the function of the Web Service Shell (WSS) that communicates with both an HTTP client and an internal handler (e.g. command line utility) responsible for generating the content returned to the client. This document also includes a technical description of the communication protocol between the shell and the handler program. This shell architecture is primarily targeted at International FDSN web services.
