Operational Messages

A message corresponds to an operation to be taken in a Live Meeting conference center by Live Meeting service at the request of a client application. A message consists of a request component and a response component. Most message components are represented as top-level XML elements. There are three exceptions: a request to get the posting URL, a request to get customized links, and a request for mass transfer. In these exceptional cases, special URLs are used to encode the message. For getting a posting URL, the message is dispatched using HTTPS GET. For mass transfer, raw data is transferred, as the payload, to or from a given resource URL using HTTPS GET (download) or HTTPS POST (upload).

Error and Status Messages

Error and status messages are the string values of error, warning, or information message elements that are returned from a conference center. An error or status message can be supplemented with additional information about the error or warning.

Message Elements

Live Meeting message elements consist of message request and reply elements. These are top-level XML elements. There are also embedded XML elements that are used to declare options, expected return values, or other properties of a message.
