Overview: The Salutation Consortium promoted and distributed, via open source, the Salutation Architecture, a service discovery and session management protocol. The Salutation Architecture was created to address the problems of service discovery and utilization among a set of appliances and equipment in an environment of connectivity and mobility. The architecture provided appliances and equipment a standard method for describing their capabilities, as well as finding out the capabilities of other devices. The architecture also enabled applications, services and devices to search for a particular capability, and to request and establish interoperable sessions with them. The architecture was based on a model called the Salutation Manager. It provided information exchange among and between different wireless handheld devices and office automation equipment. The Salutation Consortium was disbanded on 30 June 2005.
