ATOM An event/update publishing protocol The Atom Publising protocol (commonly abbreviated AtomPub) is a data format and publishing mechanism for making content easily available, indexable and searchable on the world wide web.


Atom is (arguably) best-suited for activity groups, discussions, forums and chronological (sequential) events or actions.


Specification

ATOM is the name of a family of data formats and procotols, separated into two main subtypes: Atom Publishing Protocol (commonly abbreviated AtomPub or APP) and Atom Syndication Format (commonly abbreviated Atom or Atom Feed).

AtomPub is an application-level protocol for both publishing and editing web resources using HTTP and XML (i.e. a RESTful protocol for data feeds); whereas Atom is an XML-based document format that describes lists of related information known as "feeds", which are composed of a number of items, known as "entries", each with an extensible (unconstrained by a strict DTD/XSD) set of attached metadata.[1]
