The X-Machine evaluates the media type settings specified in the
Content-Type field of an incoming HTTP request. It distinguishes
between text and binary documents. A text document can be an XML document or a
non-XML document. A binary document can only be a non-XML document.
The distinction between XML document, non-XML text document and binary document is made according to the media type as shown in the following table:
|Media type||Type of Tamino Document|
*/xml or */*+xml, for example:
|text, XML document|
text, non-XML document
|nothing or blank||text, XML document|
|All other media types||
XML documents are handled according to their Tamino schema definition, if
it exists (Tamino also allows the storage of XML documents without a matching
schema definition). This includes validating against the information stored in
Tamino's Data Map and indexing according to the
settings in the schema.
