188.8.131.52 Serialization of URIs
|For Standard||ETP v1.1|
Many of the messages in ETP make use of the URIs as opaque references to objects in a system. The definitions of these URIs conform to the specification in RFC 3986 (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986). Further definition of the specifics of Energistics standard URI schemes are found in the Energistics Identifier Specification. Of particular note for the serialization of these URIs in Avro/ETP:
- Sending agents MUST urlencode (i.e., percent encode, as per section 2 of RFC 3986) any components that contain reserved characters for the URI scheme, the specific reserved characters being found in the Energistics Identifier Specification.
- Receiving agents MUST decode all incoming URIs.
