The Global Model Exchange (GME) service provides users with the capability to store and retrieve schemas for types used in their Grid services. Developers should register the schemas defining types used in Grid services with the GME.
The Global Model Exchange (GME) Grid Service is a simple, stateless service, created with Introduce, which acts as an authoritative XML Schema registry for the grid. It's primary function is to ensure global referential integrity of all the XML Schemas used on the grid, and provide operations for their registration and discovery. It provides utility APIs for uploading from and downloading to a local file system, graphical interfaces, and integration into Introduce as a data type discovery mechanism.
