The Dataset Service provides a metadata description for a dataset.


The Dataset Service is invoked by appending the suffix .xml to the file part of the dataset's referent (aka base) URL and then dereferencing the new URL. The dataset service accepts a query string (constraint expression).

The Dataset response is an XML document that contains both the 'syntactic' (structural) and 'semantic' metadata for the dataset.
