-<h2>Conformance with DMTF Specifications</h2>
+<h2><a name="Conformance with DMTF Specifications">Conformance with DMTF Specifications</a></h2>
-<p>Pegasus tries to conform to the CIM specifications.&nbsp; It is a major goal
+<p>It is a major goal
of the OpenPegasus project to both drive and utilize the DMTF CIM/WBEM
specifications.&nbsp; However, today there are a number of known differences.&nbsp;
-As of Pegasus 2.3.2, some of the differences include the following:</p>
-
-<p>1. Provider Registration - Pegasus supports registration through a set of
-Provider registration classes and does not support the DMTF defined Provider
-Qualifier. See the readme for more information on provider registration.</p>
-
-<p>2. Indications. Today Pegasus supports process indications but does not
-include any specific support for lifecycle indications.</p>
-
-<p>3. <span class=SpellE>Interop</span> Schema implementation differences.
-Today Pegasus provides alternatives to some of the classes in the <span
-class=SpellE>Interop</span> Schema including <span class=SpellE>CIM_StatisticalData</span>.
-Note that the <span class=SpellE>CIM_ObjectManager</span> and other similar
-classes are only compiled with the SLP option.</p>
-
-<p>4. Today Pegasus does not support the execQuery pending the availability of
-a standard for the query language.&nbsp; Pegasus is expected to support
-execQuery in a future release with the new CQL query language and possibly WQL.</p>
-
-<p class=MsoNormal><span style='color:black'>5. Instance qualifiers and class
-qualifiers on some Operations -
+As of this release, some of the differences include the following:</p>
+
+<ol>
+ <li><b>Provider Registration</b> - Pegasus supports registration through a set of
+ Pegasus Provider registration classes rather than support the DMTF defined Provider
+Qualifier. Pegasus will not support this qualifier in the future. See the readme for more information on provider registration.</li>
+ <li>&nbsp;<b>Indications </b>-Today Pegasus supports process indications but does not
+include any specific support for lifecycle indications.</li>
+ <li>
+
+<p class=MsoNormal><span style='color:black'>&nbsp;<b>Instance qualifiers and class
+qualifiers on some Operations</b> -
The DMTF specifications are unclear regarding the inclusion of qualifiers on
CIM instances.&nbsp; Some CIM Client implementations expect instances returned
-from the CIM Server to include the qualifiers defined in the class definition
-(such as KEY qualifiers on properties).&nbsp; Pegasus is based on the
-interpretation that class-defined qualifiers are not included in instances, so
-incompatibilities may exist with clients that rely on these qualifiers.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
-
-<p class=MsoNormal><span style='color:black'><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p>
-
-<p class=MsoNormal><span style='color:black'>6. HTTP Chunking Today the Pegasus
-implementation defines itself as supporting HTTP 1.1 but does NOT support
-chunking. This is a high priority for a future version.</span></p>
-
-<p class=MsoNormal>&nbsp;</p>
-
-<p class=MsoNormal>7. CIM MOF compiler functions for instance aliasing - The
-Pegasus compiler does not today support thi functions.&nbsp; This function is
+from the CIM Server to include the qualifiers defined in the class definition
+(such as KEY qualifiers on properties).&nbsp; </span>&nbsp;Pegasus today expects the provider to complete the qualifiers on instances in
+accordance with the specification and generally the interpretation is that
+Pegasus applies class level qualifiers when the includeInstance parameter is
+supplied on instance operations.&nbsp; However, Pegasus today is inconsistent in
+the return of qualifiers so that the user should NOT depend on Pegasus
+accurately honoring the includeQualifier parameter for instance operations.&nbsp;
+In the future it is expected that Pegasus will deprecate the use of qualifiers
+on instance operations completely.</p>
+
+ </li>
+ <li>
+
+<p class=MsoNormal>&nbsp;<b>CIM MOF compiler function for instance aliasing</b> - The
+Pegasus MOF compiler does not today support this function.&nbsp; This function is
planned for a future version.</p>
-<p class=MsoNormal>&nbsp;</p>
+ </li>
+ <li>
-<p class=MsoNormal>8. MultiRequest Oprations - Pegasus does not support the DMTF defined MultiRequest
+<p class=MsoNormal><b>&nbsp;MultiRequest Oprations</b> - Pegasus does not support the DMTF defined MultiRequest
Operation option.</p>
-<p class=MsoNormal>&nbsp;</p>
+ </li>
+ <li>
-<p class=MsoNormal>9. LocalOnly option on some instance Operations - Because of
-incompatible changes made between CIM Operation specification versions, the DMTF
-has determined that there is confusion in the use of the LocalOnly parameter on
-instance operations and the
-results it will return.&nbsp; The definition changed between version 1.0 and
-version 1.1 of the CIM Operations
-over HTTP Specification&nbsp; so that the information provided to
-the requestor may be different between a CIM Operations version 1.0 specification
-implementation and a version 1.1 implementation.&nbsp; Therefore, the Pegasus
-community discourages the use of this parameter on any operations. <b>NOTE:</b>
-We recommend that client users always set localOnly to False (remember that the
-default is true) on instance
-operations to avoid the confusion of different information from different CIM
-Server implementations.</p>
+<p class=MsoNormal><b>&nbsp;LocalOnly option on some instance Operations </b>-
+With the 1.1 version of Specification for CIM Operations over HTTP, the
+definition of the LocalOnly parameter for the GetInstance and EnumerateInstances
+operations was modified. This change was incorrect, resulted in reduced
+functionality and introduced a number of backward compatibility issues. As a
+result of issues introduced by this change, we strongly recommend that CIM
+Clients set LocalOnly = false and do not rely on the use of this parameter to
+filter the set of set of properties returned.</p>
-<p class=MsoNormal><b>NOTE:</b> This problem does not apply to the class
-operations such as getClass, etc.</p>
