Application Service Element
<networking> (ASE) Software in the presentation layer of the OSI seven
layer model which provides an abstracted interface layer to service application
protocol data units (APDU). Because applications and networks vary, ASEs are
split into common services and specific services.
Examples of services provided by the common application service element (CASE)
include remote operations (ROSE) and database concurrency control and recovery
The specific application service element (SASE) provides more specialised
services such as file transfer, database access, and order entry.
