This document is a summary of the basic differences between the different kind of containers that Linked Data Platform (LDP) supports.
LDP specifies three types of containers:
- Basic Container
- Direct Container
- Indirect Container.
This documents describes the differences between the three types of containers by showing what triples are added by an LDP Server when adding a new element to each kind of container.
In particular we assume we have a fictitious blog entry (
/blog/entry1/) and we want to add a comment to it. We start by showing what happens if the blog entry is a Basic Container, then we show what happens if the blog entry was instead a Direct Container, and lastly if it was an Indirect Container.
