Services can be added to the BES in addition to the dap service. For example, the CEDAR project adds the service cedar with the commands flat, tab, info, and stream, each of those commands with the format cedar.

You can also add commands to a service. For example, the dap-server modules add the three commands ascii, info_page, and html_form to the dap service because they use the base services provided by the dap service. In other words, the ascii response, for example, takes a data response and converts it to ascii.

And, you can add formats to the different commands. For example, the fileout_netcdf module can take a data response dods and return it as a netcdf file. So it adds the format netcdf to the dods command of the dap service.
