    38    A piece of software run alongside the discovery database, which offers a "presentation-less" service to handle search requests. On receipt of an appropriately-constructed XML message from the '''search interface''', it will carry out a search of the discovery database and construct a search response message, which is sent back to the search interface. Similarly, it also handles requests for returning specific documents in the database : a request is received in XML, and an appropriate response is sent back to the sender. In all cases, messages (request/response) are exchanged in XML, with all presentational formatting handled by the search interface (which itself may be part of a 3rd party web portal).
