This protocol describes the XML representation of contacts (2) that are used by the command requests and command responses that are described in [MS-ASCMD]. The protocol governing the transmission of these commands between the client and the server is described in [MS-ASCMD]. The Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) Binary XML (WBXML), as described in [MS-ASWBXML], is used to transmit the XML markup that constitutes the request body and the response body.

Some elements in the Contact class support being ghosted. The use of ghosted properties is described in [MS-ASCMD] section

All data types in this document conform to the data type definitions that are described in [MS-ASDTYPE]. Common XML schema elements used by other classes are defined in [MS-ASAIRS].

For conceptual background information and overviews of the relationships and interactions between this and other protocols, see [MS-OXPROTO].
