Abstract
This paper presents the design and implementation of
DOT, a flexible architecture for data transfer. This archi-
tecture separates content negotiation from the data transfer
itself. Applications determine what data they need to send
and then use a new transfer service to send it. This transfer
service acts as a common interface between applications
and the lower-level network layers, facilitating innovation
both above and below. The transfer service frees devel-
opers from re-inventing transfer mechanisms in each new
application. New transfer mechanisms, in turn, can be eas-
ily deployed without modifying existing applications.
We discuss the benefits that arise from separating data
transfer into a service and the challenges this service must
overcome. The paper then examines the implementation of
