TITLE

The "http://webservices.currencysystem.com" Namespace

 
TOPIC

Q: Why did I end up on this page?

 
DISCUSSION

A: You probably manually followed what looked like a link in a Web Services Description Language (WSDL) document.

XML Web services, like XML itself, use namespaces to uniquely identify names. The use of namespaces makes sure, for example, that the services provided by different organizations are not confused with each other.

The "http://webservices.currencysystem.com" property is not the address of a web site, but rather it was chosen to define a unique namespace. This uniqueness is guaranteed by internet naming authorities, who assigned "currencysystem.com", and by the local assignment of the "webservices" part of the hierarchy.

This web page and the redirection to it serve no function other than explaining the purpose of the "http://webservices.currencysystem.com" namespace.
