1 Introduction

This document specifies an extension to the Devices Profile for Web Services (DPWS) to allow the negotiation of message sizes between a client and a service for a specific message transaction. This extension to an existing protocol does not define new operations, but instead defines XML Schema that may be added to existing messages to allow clients and services to properly configure themselves.

Sections 1.5, 1.8, 1.9, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
