Data Exchange Description
The Reusable Component Services (RCS) is a central registry for Exchange Network Partners to share information about available technical resources. RCS provides metadata about technical resources available to developers, such as web services, schema, widgets, and other tools. The information in RCS promotes sharing and reuse of resources, whether from direct use or from information sharing, resulting in standardization across environmental applications. RCS is a component of the centralized System of Registries (SoR), which provides access to a set of registry systems. The RCS data exchange allows Partners to use web services to access data from RCS. Service queries pull standardized information about all resources matching a particular resource type.
The RCS schema and supporting flow documentation have been approved for use on the Exchange Network. Implementation resources for the most current version follow.
