'The OASIS Extensible Resource Identifier (XRI) Technical Committee will
define a URI scheme and a corresponding Uniform Resource Namespace (URN) for
a common identification scheme across domains, applications, and transport
protocols. The plan also involves developing mechanisms for resolving XRIs
and exchanging data and metadata associated with XRI-identified resources,
OASIS said.
"XRI is about creating a common URI for how we will refer to distributed
information, whether it's objects in a directory service [such as user
objects], or dealing with files in different servers or with different types
of documents that might be in different systems," said Justin Taylor, chief
strategist for directory services at Novell, which is participating in OASIS
and XRI development.'
