What is namespace, please don't poo poo this questions, I have read the first few chapters of 2 recomended books and now I am confused. Can anybody please explain this to me. I have a very simplistic definition for it, the scope in which the element is valid and can be used to qualify. But the chapters seem to put a lot of importance to it so what am I missing. P.S, BTW, I am struggling with webservices so I am apolozising for this majorly dumb and fundamental question of mine.
I liked the sample of namespace from that article, when it considered as a set of names that you can give to your children - you would call each one with unique name, which differs from the name on your other children, but not necessary unique among other people in the world =).
Feel free to ask what exactly not clear for you in namespaces.
As for me, for first time, it was not so clear, what is the different between qualified namespace name and QName
