  The CODAS department of the Joint European Torus project has developed an application protocol for centralised simultaneous data acquisition, control and monitoring of a large number of processors. It is developed around the easy-to-use HTTP standard. The protocol has now been in use for about 5 years. It is intended to allow parallel, collaborative, developments to take place, by defining communication interfaces between systems. For this reason, it is referred to as the 'Black Box' protocol. The paper outlines the main factors that led to this protocol choice, and the benefits and experience gained. The paper briefly describes the functionality of the protocol, and explains how these are being used on a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Solaris, VME, and PLCs.
