(February 11, 2003) - Novell is making it easier for developers to connect
Web services with Novell eDirectory, to add a foundation for secure identity

to eDirectory using common Web services protocols. Novell has also released
its new DSML code to the open source community.
DSML bridges the gap between developing to Web services and developing to a

URIs are the lingua franca of the web. They are in every web page and every
HTTP request. In a practical sense, they represent the realization of the
web. Without them, the web would cease to exist. The situation is very
different in the world of the RDBMS. Here, URIs are interlopers. Some RDBMS
have provided basic support for URIs via their object extension facilities;
however, URIs are still not considered a formal part of RDBMS schema design.
This talk explores how URI could evolve to become as important to RDBMS
Schemas as it is to the web.
One aspect of URI 'types' this pres... (more)
