HTTP System

Undraw Circuit Board


http is a system of URL.

A URL when requested returns always a content resource (document) with a media type.


As a file system:

  • a document can be seen as a file with its URL as path.
  • http does not have the notion of directory and therefore cannot be traversed as a file tree system, therefore the glob selections are not available.
  • A URL has a hierarchical structure where we can give a parent to a document.
