Method to Report Status For Distributed Staple Documents
A method is described to report for individual status for either document
within a staple that was previously distributed in a network.
A staple is a logical organization of documents which are linear in order. A
document can be stapled to another and/or stapled by another.
The method provides a protocol for an application to permit staple status to
be reported back for distributions with confirmation or for distribution errors.
Each reported status retains the logical organization structure of the document
the status is being reported for. That is, the status can interpreted like a staple.
This is done by providing a relational object within each status. The relation
object specifies whether a status being reported for a document is stapled to
another document and/or stapled by another another document.
The status reporting scheme can be illustrated with following example. A
Document-A is stapled to Document-B. The Document-B is stapled to Document-
C. These documents are distributed as a collection of documents. The receiving
node, due to system error, is unable to handle Document-C. The new method
allows a status to be reported stating that Document-C, stapled to Document-B,
had caused a system error. Using this illustration, one can see that each
individual relation of a distributed staple can be reported using the new method.
