What is a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI)?


Uniform resource identifiers (URI) provide a standard way to refer to an object. Common objects like web pages and mobile applications use URIs to provide an address that is universally understood within a given category of objects. It is important that within a given category (or domain space) URIs describe a unique object. Uniqueness is not guaranteed across categories.
