This document describes the OGC Web Feature Service (WFS) operations. The WFS operations support INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, LOCK, QUERY and DISCOVERY operations on geographic features using HTTP as the distributed computing platform. In the context of this document, a transaction is a logical unit of work that is composed of one or more data manipulation operations. Since the manner in which geographic features are persistently stored is not addressed in this document, no transaction semantics, such as atomic failure, are assumed to exist. It is the function of a web feature service, in its interaction with the data storage system used to persistently store features, to ensure that changes to data are consistent. However, the document also acknowledges the fact that many systems do support standard concurrent transaction semantics and so proposes optional operations that will allow a web feature service to take advantage of such systems (e.g. relational database systems based on SQL.....
