This Recommendation | International Standard is based on the framework of abstractions and concepts developed in the Reference Model for Open Distributed Processing (ITU-T Rec. X.902 | ISO/IEC 10746-2 and ITU-T Rec. X.903 | ISO/IEC 10746-3). This Recommendation | International Standard defines how interactions between computational objects in a computational specification of a system relate to protocol support for those interactions in an engineering specification of that system. In particular it: -- defines a General Interworking Framework (GIF); -- within the GIF, defines a set of facilities each comprising a set of functionally-related service primitives as abstract definitions of the interactions of basic engineering objects and channel objects; -- defines the parameters of the service primitives of the GIF; -- defines the permitted sequence of the service primitives by means of state tables; -- specifies, in annexes, the mapping of the GIF service primitives and their parameters to the messages and fields of particular protocols. As specified in this Recommendation | International Standard, the GIF defines protocol support for a pragmatic subset of the possible computational interactions defined in ITU-T Rec. X.903 | ISO/IEC 10746-3. It is also restricted in the features of the protocol support and the supported transparencies. The GIF, as specified here, defines: -- support for computational operations, but not for streams; -- support using stub, binder and protocol objects hierarchically, such that any interaction at the interworking reference point of the supporting protocol object supports liaisons of one of those objects or of the basic engineering object, and any interaction to support those liaisons is passed via that interworking reference point; and -- interactions at a single interworking reference point, from the perspective of one side; interceptors are not explicitly considered;
