public abstract class Specification extends Object
This class operates as a Factory creating request for Open Web Services.
The idea is that this class operates a Toolkit for all things assocated with an Open Web Service specification. The various objects produced by this toolkit are used as strategy objects for the top level AbstractOpenWebService subclass. Example:
Both name and version information that may be checked against a GetCapabilities document during version negotiation. Specific Open Web Service implementations can extend this interface to include details that are specific to their specification. Example: The Web Map Service specification includes more operations such as GetMap and GetFeatureInfo.
Q: Why are these not static?
A: Because we want to place new specifications into a data structure for WebMapServer to search through dynamically
