NAME

       pilot-qof - Query Object Framework Serialisation Format: QSF

WHAT IS QSF?

       QSF  -  QOF Serialization Format - lays out a QOF object in a series of
       XML tags. The format will consist of two component formats:

       ·  qof-qsf for the QSF object data and

       ·  qsf-map to map sets of QSF objects between QOF applications.

       QSF object files will contain user data and are to be exported from QOF
       applications  under  user  control or they can be hand-edited. QSF maps
       contain application data and can be created by  application  developers
       from  application  source  code. Tools may be created later to generate
       maps interactively but maps require application support as well  as  an
       understanding  of QOF objects in the import and output applications and
       are intended to remain  within  the  scope  of  application  developers
       rather than users.

       A  QSF file written by one QOF application will need an appropriate QSF
       map before the data can be accessed by a  different  application  using
       QOF.  Any  QSF objects that are not defined in the map will be ignored.
       QSF files written and accessed by the same application can use maps  if
       necessary or can simply import the QSF data as a whole.
