Abstract

The Extensible Markup Language (XML) [RFC7303] is a common format for the exchange and storage of structured data. HTTP PATCH [RFC5789] extends HTTP [RFC7231] with a method to perform partial modifications to resources. HTTP PATCH requires that patch documents be sent along with the request, and it is therefore useful for there to be standardized patch document formats (identified by media types) for popular media types.

                  A Media Type for XML Patch Operations

Abstract

   The XML patch document format defines an XML document structure for    expressing a sequence of patch operations to be applied to an XML    document.  The XML patch document format builds on the foundations    defined in RFC 5261.  This specification also provides the media type    registration "application/xml-patch+xml", to allow the use of XML    patch documents in, for example, HTTP conversations.
