ready TAPRegExt

General Information
TAPRegExt is a VOResource schema extension for describing TAP services. It is an XML encoding standard for metadata about services implementing the table access protocol (TAP). Instance documents are part of the service's registry record or can be obtained from the service itself. They deliver information to both humans and software on the languages, output formats, and upload methods supported by the service, as well as data models implemented by the exposed tables, optional language features, and certain limits enforced by the service. To accommodate a wide variety of requirements, the TAP specification offers implementors many choices on optional features, resource limits, or locally defined functionality. One purpose of TAPRegExt is to allow the service to communicate such choices to remote clients using the mechanisms laid down in the VO Service Interfaces standard
