A network data object or service that can be identified by a URL. Resources may be available in multiple representations (for example, multiple languages, data formats, size, and resolutions) or vary in other ways.
A network data object or service that can be identified by a URI. Resources may be available in multiple representations (e.g. multiple languages, data formats, size, resolutions) or vary in other ways. [ HTTP
From Web Characterization Terminology & Definitions Sheet ( 1999-05-24) The URI specification describes a resource as the common term for "...anything that has identity. Familiar examples include an electronic document, an image, a service (e.g., "today's weather report for Los Angeles"), as well as a collection of other resources. Not all resources are network "retrievable"; e.g., human beings, corporations, and bound books in a library can also be considered resources..." (see also the term Web Resource).
Some entity. It could be a web resource such as web page, or it could be a concrete physical thing such as a tree or a car. It could be an abstract idea such as chess or football. Resources are named by URI's.
anything that may be interesting to describe in a Semantic Web application. A Web page, an e-mail, a file, ... are all resources, but so might be a person, a car, even an idea. Resources are identified by URIs.
An abstract object that represents either a physical object such as a person or a book or a conceptual object such as a color or the class of things that have colors. Web pages are usually considered to be physical objects, but the distinction between physical and conceptual or abstract objects is not important to RDF. A resource can also be a component of a larger object; for example, a resource can represent a specific person's left hand or a specific paragraph out of a document. As used in this specification, the term resource refers to the whole of an object if the URI does not contain a fragment (anchor) id or to the specific subunit named by the fragment or anchor id.
Intended conceptual target of a hypertext reference. "Any information that can be named can be a resource: a document or image, a temporal service (e.g. "today's weather in Los Angeles"), a collection of other resources, a non-virtual object (e.g. a person), and so on. In other words, any concept that might be the target of an author's hypertext reference must fit within the definition of a resource." "The only thing that is required to be static for a resource is the semantics of the mapping, since the semantics is what distinguishes one resource from another." Roy T. Fielding Another definition adapted from the URI standard (RFC 3986): a resource is the conceptual mapping to a representation (also known as entity) or set of representations, not necessarily the representation which corresponds to that mapping at any particular instance in time. Thus, a resource can remain constant even when its content (the representations to which it currently corresponds) changes over time, provided that the conceptual mapping is not changed in the process. In addition, a resource is always identified by a URI.
The concept of Resource is primitive in the Web architecture, and is used in the definition of its fundamental elements. The term was first introduced to refer to targets of Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), but its definition has been further extended to include the referent of any Uniform Resource Identifier (RFC 3986), or Internationalized Resource Identifier (RFC 3987). In the Semantic Web, abstract resources and their semantic properties are described using the family of languages based on Resource Description Framework (RDF).
An assignable entity required for completing or accessing an offering. Resources can be finite or depletable. A finite resource is a fixed resource with definable limitations, such as an instructor, projector, or classroom. A depletable resource is a resource that can be reduced in number and quantity; that is, materials such as pencils, paper, and chalk. Back to top of glossary
Any set of physically or conceptually identifiable entities within a Telecommunication Network ,the use of which can be unambiguously determined TINA -C: A generalisation of any entity that requires generic management, i.e. the maintenance of operational,usage and administrative states.) source: ITU-T Glossary domain: TMN usage: EU-P103
In IBM Tivoli Monitoring context, a resource is anything that affects the operation of the system and includes physical and logical disks, CPUs, memory, printers, as well as the processes running, services, such as LanMan and the Windows event log, and TCP/IP.
In the terminology of SRB, a resource is a software/hardware system that provides the storage functionalities. For example, HPSS can be a resource, as can a Unix file system. The term is equivalent to " Physical Resource". Logical Resources and Compound Resources are composed of multiple physical resources.
In Event Management, an entity in the system that provides a set of services. Examples of resources include hardware entities such as processors, disk drives, memory, and adapters, and software entities such as database applications, processes, and file systems. Each resource in the system has one or more attributes that define the state of the resource.
Any part of a computer system or network, such as a disk drive, printer, or memory, that can be allotted to a program or a process while it is running. For Device Manager, any of four system components that control how the devices on a computer work. These four system resources are: interrupt request (IRQ) lines, direct memory access (DMA) channels, input/output (I/O) ports, and memory addresses. In a server cluster, an instance of a resource type; the Cluster service manages various physical or logical items as resources. See also direct memory access (DMA); input/output (IO) port; interrupt request (IRQ) lines; memory address.
Can be divided into software and hardware resources. Software resources may be specific to applications, or they may be kernel data structures such as the process table, open file, and in-core inode tables, buffer and namei caches, multiphysical buffers, and character lists. Hardware resources are a computer's physical subsystems. The three main subsystems are CPU, memory and I/O. The memory subsystem can be divided into two resources -- physical memory (or main memory) and swap space (or secondary memory). The I/O subsystem comprises one or more resources of similar or different types -- hard and floppy disk drives, tape drives, CD-ROMs, graphics displays and network devices.
Anything used or consumed while performing a function. The categories of resources are: time, information, objects (information containers), or processors (the ability to use information). Specific examples are: CPU time; terminal connect time; amount of directly-addressable memory; disk space; number of I/O requests per minute, etc.
(1) Objects within the database. There are managed and unmanaged resources. Non-managed resources can be viewed from the Tivoli desktop. See managed resource. (2) (2) Any type of limited resource, such as tape drivers, communication lines, databases, or printers, that is needed to run a job. You designate when a resource is available, in what quantities, and by which logical workstations the resource can be used. This information helps determine when job stream instances are scheduled to run. In the graphical user interface (GUI), resources are also called logical resources. (3) (3) Any facility of a computing system or operating system required by a job or task, and including main storage, input/output devices, the processing unit, data sets, and control or processing programs. See also managed resource.
Any facility of a computing system or operating system required by a job or task, including main storage, input/output devices, the processing unit, data sets, and control or processing programs. In Tivoli NetView for OS/390, any hardware or software that provides function to the network.
A single physical or logical entity that provides a service to clients or other resources. For example, a resource can be a single disk volume, a particular network address, or an application such as a web server. A resource is generally available for use over time on two or more node in a cluster, although it can be allocated to only one node at any given time. Resources are identified by a resource name and a resource type. Dependent resources must be part of the same resource group and are identified in a resource dependency list.
any capacity which must be scheduled, assigned, or controlled by the underlying implementation to assure consistent and non-conflicting usage by Processes. Examples of resources include: CPU time, memory space (actual and virtual), and shared facilities (variables, devices, spoolers, etc.).
Generally, any part of a computer system or network, such as a disk drive, printer, or memory, that can be allotted to a running program or a process. For Device Manager, any of four system components that control how the devices on a computer work. These four system resources are interrupt request (IRQ) lines, direct memory access (DMA) channels, input/output (I/O) ports, and memory addresses. For server clusters, a physical or logical entity that is capable of being managed by a cluster, brought online and taken offline, and moved between nodes. A resource can be owned only by a single node at any point in time. See also: direct memory access (DMA); input/output (I/O) port; interrupt request (IRQ) lines; memory address; offline; online; resource; server cluster
An entity (such as a device object, file object, section object, variable, structure, or buffer) visible to one or more processes. In kernel mode, a system-defined type of opaque variable manipulated by the Ex..Resource Xxx support routines. A shared resource is a multiprocessor-safe synchronization mechanism, rather like a gating semaphore with a dynamic limit value. Drivers, usually file systems, can use one or more resource variables to control access to a memory entity, such as a file or database, on a multiple-reader (shared access), single-writer (exclusive access) basis. In particular, file systems that support caching files and paging I/O share certain resource variables with the Cache and Memory Managers.
Resource files are files used by the recognition engine to assist it in the recognition process, for example, the files that identify handwriting styles are resources, as are files used to recognize data formats, based on lexicons, or regular expressions. This knowledge is compiled into a file format, ready to be attached to a recognizer.
Data defined in a resource file, externally to a program. The resource file contains language-dependent string text and specifications of user interface elements. See also: resource file resource compiler Rcomp
A "resource" is a link to a data file (on hard disk, CD or a network drive). It can also be used for a link to a website (a URL such as "http://www.axiope.com"). "Resource" is one of the field types available when you make a class, so you can make references to files from records.
programming: One of Mac's greatest innovations when it came out in 1984. Resources are small chunks of program code that can be used over and over by applications. Every element of the Mac interface which we have come to know and love is a resource. Menus, icons, cursors, keyboard layouts, and many other things are resources. System software is largely composed of resources. Programs written for the Mac usually "borrow" system resources in order to generate their own interface. Any file or program running on the Mac has the potential to contain its own resources, in a section of the file known as the "resource fork". There is a parallel portion of the file called the "data fork" where the actual numeric and textual data lives.
Information (text) or downloadable files that may be of use to dancers (amateurs and professional), andanyone else working in dance (e.g. DJs). This includes choreography, terminology and music. Resource web sites on DanceWeb are given a star rating, to indicate their likely value.
An individual media or file element used within a Learning Object or an Assessment Item. For example, GIF images, BMP images, AU or RA audio files, video files, Microsoft Office files, HTML files, animation files.
(1) Any facility of a computing system or operating system required by a job or task, including main storage, input/output devices, the processing unit, data sets, and control or processing programs. (2) A binary data item that is linked to an executable file, a DLL, or some other binary file. Typically a resource defines an interface component such as a dialog box, a menu, an icon, a font, a bitmap, or a cursor. (3) Any element that requires translation, such as messages or online help.
A data structure used to store a program's data or code. This structure is declared and defined using the Rez language. Resources used to store code are built by the linker; resources used to store data are built by a resource compiler.
In the Java programming language a resource is a piece of data that can be accessed relative to the code of an application. An application can access its resources through Uniform Resource Locators, like web resources, but the resources are usually contained within the JAR file(s) of the application.
anything that is assigned to an activity or needed to complete an activity. This may include equipment, people, buildings, etc. Generally, it is the individual staff members of whom the project team is composed and to whom tasks are assigned.
anything used directly by people; in an economics sense, resources may mean stock that can be drawn on (Natural resources are the "stock" of the land; human resources are people and their knowledge, skills, inventiveness, and ingenuity; and resources produced by people include available goods and financial capital.)
The thing being described - which could be a service, an object, any form of published document on-line or off-line, a government agency etc. There is no limit to what could be a resource. It's anything made available to the public by any government agency.
The staff, equipment and funding required to carry out a project. It can also refer to any kind of written or electronic material. In internet terminology a resource is anything that can be addressable by a URL.
any variable capable of definition that is required for the completion of an activity and may constrain the project. Note 1: A resource may be non-storable so that its availability has to be renewed for each time period (even if it was not utilised in previous time periods). Note 2: A resource may be storable so that it remains available unless depleted by usage. Such a resource may also be replenished by activities producing credited and storable resource. (Resources can be people, equipment, facilities, funding or anything else needed to perform the work of a project).
anything needed or used to carry out a plan, project or other endeavor. In the case The Network it's anything that helps carry out the mission. definition of resource defined for enterprise and economic development definition of resources defined as needed or used in site selection
Per [RFC2396bis], "anything that can be named or described." Resources are of two types: network resources (those that are network addressable) and non-network resources (those that exist entirely independent of a network). Network resources are themselves of two types: direct resources (resources which are their entire embodiment) or resource representations (see Resource Representation).
In project management terminology, resources are required to carry out the project tasks. They can be people, equipment, facilities, funding, or anything else capable of definition (usually other than labour) required for the completion of a project activity. The lack of a resource will therefore be a constraint on the completion of the project activity.
A variable defined as part of the definition of a class. Resource values in objects can be set by using a NhlCreate function or a NhlSetValues function. Resource values can be retrieved using a NhlGetValues function.
Resources for community mapping resources include available financial support, human resources, technical assistance, in-kind resources, academic and technical standards, organizations that share similar goals and objectives, youth and adult services, and supportive policies.
An inanimate object, such as a conference room or a piece of equipment, that has its own calendar. When creating an event in their calendar, users can invite resources in the same way that they invite other users. Resources are managed by users who act as designates. Resources can also be used to create a calendar for tracking related enterprise-wide information, such as company holidays or employees' travel schedules.
An object or description needed by the builder to assemble a particular window for a running application. Resources include interface specification canvas es), menu bars, graphical image s, and database queries. An application's resources are normally stored in separate resource method s in an application model.
An object (document, person, consumer item, etc.) you want to find by navigating a FacetMap. A resource falls under one or more headings, which is how users find it. In the wine demo, bottles of wine are the resources.
A resource is a concentration or occurrence of natural, solid, inorganic or fossilized organic material in or on the Earth's crust in such form and quantity and of such a grade or quality that it has reasonable prospects for economic extraction. The location, quantity, grade, geological characteristics and continuity of a Mineral Resource are known, estimated or interpreted from specific geological evidence and knowledge.
A concentration or occurrence of natural, solid, inorganic or fossilized organic material in or on the earth's crust in such form and quantity and of such a grade or quality that it has reasonable prospects for economic extraction. Mineral resources are subdivided, in order of increasing geological confidence, into inferred, indicated and measured categories. For more information, see our annual report at cameco.com.
Any nonexecutable data that is logically deployed with an application. A resource might be displayed in an application as error messages or as part of the user interface. Resources can contain data in a number of forms, including strings, images, and persisted objects.
A physical or logical component that is available to a computing system. Most commonly, a resource is an Oracle database server. These resources are categorized by type and can include an Oracle database server resource and other services upon which these items depend. The various resource types are each separately managed on a given Data Guard configuration by a resource guard. Resource guards are registered with Data Guard broker during configuration. See also guarded resource.
A resource, or system resource, is any physical or virtual component of limited availability within a computer system. Every device connected to a computer system is a resource. Every internal system component is a resource.
A Resource is a SIMUL8 object that allows jobs to take place. You don't need to include resources in a simulation, but if you do then they act as a constraint or switch when attached to work centers. Resources can have shift patterns, so that staff availability can be simulated, and can represent staff or other key pieces of equipment that have limited availability.
An item of information provided on the Web. It was felt that other terms such as document, were too narrow to express the range of different media currently available, and likely to become available in the future.
Application, web site, network, system, etc. An AAI-enabled Resource is authorized to request attributes about users from a Home Organization on behalf of a relying organization ( Federation Member or Federation Partner).
Windows, pixmaps, cursors, fonts, graphics contexts, and color maps are known as ``resources''. They all have unique identifiers associated with them for naming purposes. The lifetime of a resource is bounded by the lifetime of the connection over which the resource was created.
The resource or a JID can provide additional information about how a user is accessing a Jabber server. A Resource can be where a user is connecting from, for example home or work, what type of client a user is connecting with, for example a palmPC, or a resource can be the type of client a user is connecting with, for example JIM or WinJab.
An on-line information set or an on-line interactive option. An on-line library catalog or the local school lunch menu are examples of information sets. On-line menus or graphical user interfaces, Internet e-mail, on-line conferences, telnet, FTP, and Gopher are examples of interactive options.
The specific groups or individuals who complete the project work and their associated financial resources (project budget). This also includes specific equipment, such as computers and computer labs. Resources compose one side of the trade-off triangle with schedule and features being the other two.
ressource A resource is source or supply that can be drawn on to support or fulfill a specific need or to handle a situation. Information is a resource that supports and enables business delivery, fulfills inquiry requests, and adds value to other products and services. Information is a strategic business resource when it is recognized and managed as a valuable business asset, independent of organizational boundaries, to address immediate needs, exploit opportunities to leverage it for business advantage, and enhance its value through knowledge creation and preservation.

Something which may be allocated and watched for events. For example, a filehandle. Once a resource is watched, the kernel will generate new events whenever it it becomes ready to be serviced. see: event fields, event handler parameters, immediate event, I/O resource, queued event
any environmental feature (biotic or abiotic) of importance to an organism's fitness. Examples include food, nesting sites, shelter, mates, symbionts, or specific places in the environment that are favorable physiologically or for behavioral reasons. Contests are waged over resources.
a re-usable source of supply to produce something. Examples include human, financial, material, and information resources. To maximize the efficient and effective use of resources, they must be classified in order to share them and eliminate unwanted redundancy, and controlled in order to receive, store and distribute them properly.
any part of the physical environment, living or non-living, or any human skill or knowledge that can be used in the production of the goods and services that provide the means to satisfy goals, purposes or needs. Resources can be classified into human resources (e.g. time, human energy, knowledge, skills, attitudes, physical strength, health), material resources (e.g. electricity, water, money, housing, furniture, investments, savings, equipment) and natural resources (e.g. rivers, fertile soil, animals, plants, lakes, trees).
A known and accessible supply that constitutes a means by which to achieve a specific goal. In a wider sense, everything that an organization can use to create value for customers is a resource, including employees, knowledge and expertise, capital, materials and energy. in a narrower sense, resources are those that are used in manufacturing, mainly materials and energy.
Any of several data structures included in a HATS project. HATS resources include templates, screen customizations, transformations, screen captures, and macros. Other WebSphere Studio plugins sometimes call these "artifacts."
Functionality (for example, voice-store-and-forward) that can be assigned to call. Resources are shared when functionality is selectively assigned to a call (usually via a PEB time slot) and may be shared among multiple calls. Resources are dedicated when functionality is fixed to the one call.
A name that designates a particular attribute that will affect plotting with PyNGL. Resources can be assigned values. A couple examples of resources are xyLineColors, used for defining line colors in an XY plot, and cnLineLabelsOn, used for controlling whether line labels appear on contour plots. There are hundreds of legal resources.
Any information on the network that you might want to locate. For example, a web page or a word-processing document. Netscape Compass Server locates and indexes resources so you can easily search for them. In this context, resource and document are used to mean the same thing.
Information Center: Located in Room 100 of Gilmore Hall, the Resource Information Center provides grantseekers with tools for finding and applying for funding, including books, electronic databases, Internet resources, and directories.
an element that makes up or contributes to a state that is extremely useful and resourceful for an individual in a specific context. A resource may consist of a positive kinaesthetic, or an internal sound byte, or image, it might be a memory, or an abstraction - a collection of useful 'bits and pieces'.
