Hi, Can any help me in understanding the difference between URI and URL. As I goggled but no getting the satisfactory answer.Still got more confused. As someone says URI is subset of URL as URI only idetify the resource but how to locate only URL can tell. Is it it true??

That is not how a subset is defined. A URL is always a URI but a URI isn't necessarily a URL which means that the URLs are a subset of a URIs (see the Venn diagram in the article). The fact that a URL accomplishes a greater number of "goals" has nothing to do with it - in fact it indicates that a URL is a more specialized form of a URI.
