6 Energistics URI
|For Standard||EID v4.0|
The Energistics URI also provides a mechanism to identify an asset using compound identity, location in a hierarchy, or identifiers other than UUIDs. Two things are important to remember about URIs:
- They are identifiers and not necessarily locators. Because of their format and the way identifiers are constructed, it is a common mistake to think that they point to an actual resource on the Web (a URL). While it is possible for a URI to be URL, it is not always true and do not assume that it is true. URIs are simply ways of uniquely identifying things.
- It is expected and normal for a given real-world object of interest to have multiple URIs.
