When trying to use SPARQL one stumbles upon the concept of "endpoint". When
I checked in the (Candidate) Recommendation the word endpoint is not used at
all. Yet, when you use Google you get many deliberations about endpoints,
but nowhere a definition or standardization. How come? Where can I find
reading material about (SPARQL) endpoints that doesn't assume that I already
know what it is?
I also have a direct question: what is the difference between a URI and an
endpoint? Somewhere I read a discussion about this, but the participants in
that discussion didn't seem to agree with each other, so it seems that I am
not completely alone in my ignorance.
Can someone help me?
