4.11 Extensions to the standard

OMI admits extensions for specific implementations or for specific applications. Extensions to the standard may afford increased performance in homogeneous networks, add proprietary functions, or enable experimentation with features planned for new versions of OMI.

Implementers shall register their extensions with the MUMPS Development Committee, the sponsor of ANSI/MDC X11.2, to assure uniqueness. Two numbers identify an extension; an operation class and an error class. Each class comprises 65 536 values.

An extension may coexist with other extensions. The agent and the server shall notify each other of their available extensions when establishing the session, and they may use any number of these extensions during the session.

Implementers define extensions, and they shall bear responsibility for conflicts with the standard and among extensions. An implementation that provides an extension shall also provide the standard protocol.
