Contains UPnP-related terms that begin with the letter S.
A service is a logical functional unit. Services expose actions and model some or all of the states of a physical device using state variables.
- service description
A service description is a list of the actions a service provides, and the state variables associated with the actions.
- service object
A service object is the Control Point API representation of a service. A service object implements the IUPnPService interface.
- service type
A service type is a URN that identifies a service. There is a one-to-one relationship between a UPnP service template and a service type. Several standard service types are defined by the UPnP Forum working committees. The service types are in the form urn:schemas-upnp-org:service:serviceType:version. For example, a scanner service type could be urn:schemas-upnp-org:service:scanner:1.
UPnP vendors may specify additional services. Such services are denoted by urn:domain-name:service:serviceType:version where domain-name is a domain name that is registered to the vendor.
- state variable
A state variable is a piece of data that describes some part of a service's state.
