Data Services World : Mark Hapner's WADL, URIs as Database Types, Tricks of the Architect's Trade Session

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.
