Interface ExternalLink

All Superinterfaces:
ExtensibleObject, RegistryObject, URIValidator

public interface ExternalLink
extends RegistryObject, URIValidator

ExternalLink instances model a named URI to content that may reside outside the registry. RegistryObject may be associated with any number of ExternalLinks to annotate a RegistryObject with external links to external content.

Consider the case where a Submitting Organization submits a repository item (e.g. a DTD) and wants to associate some external content to that object (e.g. the Submitting Organization's home page). The ExternalLink enables this capability.
