I want to clarify something about feature references in WFS 2.0 standard (OGC 09-025r1 document)

Do I understand correctly, that "resolve feature reference" means "get (remote or local) feature by xlink and include it to response results subset"?

Accordingly, remote feature - feature linked by "http://(.*)#myfeature.1", local - feature located on the same (requested) server

  • I couldn't find that exact phrase in the referenced standard, but terms and definitions 4.23 resolve says: retrieval of a referenced resource and its insertion into a server-generated response document NOTE The insertion may be accomplished by either replacing the reference in-line with a copy of the resource or by relocating the reference to point to a copy of the resource that has been placed in the response document. – nmtoken Jul 20 at 19:31
  • @nmtoken , thanks, this clarifies the situation somewhat. But I still do not really understand what a local link is and what a remote link is – Bloody Altair Jul 21 at 21:28

I couldn't find that exact phrase ("resolve feature reference") in the referenced standard, but the answers are I think in the terms and definitions section.

4.23 resolve retrieval of a referenced resource and its insertion into a server-generated response document

NOTE The insertion may be accomplished by either replacing the reference in-line with a copy of the resource or by relocating the reference to point to a copy of the resource that has been placed in the response document.

Similarly

4.13 local resource resource that is under the direct control of a system

NOTE In this International Standard, the system is a web feature service and the resource is held in a data store that is directly controlled by that service

and

4.20 remote resource resource that is not under direct control of a system

NOTE In this International Standard, the system is a web feature service. The resource is not held in any data store that is directly controlled by that service and thus cannot be directly retrieved by the service.
