VersionEdition and version-relative URIs are useful to identify version-specific characteristics of components and reference set members that are specific to an edition or version. Conceptually, they build on the idea of what one resource ( the version) says about another (e.g. a component).


Edition-relative URIs for components take the following form:{moduleid}/id/{sctid}

Version-relative URIs for components take the following form:{moduleid}/version/{time}/id/{sctid}

Edition-relative URIs for reference set members take the following form:{moduleid}/id/{uuid}

Version-relative URIs for reference set members take the following form:{moduleid}/version/{time}/id/{uuid}
