HTTPS support in CM-Well: Phases
In RDF, all elements are URIs. The Subject is somewhat special in the eyes of CM-Well, as it is the path of the Infoton. Other elements (Predicate, Object, and Quad/Graph) are preserved as they were ingested.
- Note this has nothing to do with the way CM-Well is communicated with. A CM-Well Cluster can live in an http endpoint and ingest data which "https" exists in payload, and vice versa.
Phase 0 - The Way It Used to Be
In order to preserve the https protocol of Subjects, we used to mangle the path of the Infoton, adding a prefix of
https. before the domain. While this was fully supported, it felt "ugly" and we wanted to choose a different representation.
