A CDE Definition
A naming system that is used in a large environment. It could, but does not necessarily mean worldwide; for example, a naming convention used in one system or in one company that is expanded for use in multiple systems or multiple companies could then be called a global namespace. See namespace.
A naming system that uses unique names to identify an object. For example, a network requires a different name for each workstation, server and printer. The Internet uses a hierarchical namespace that partitions names into top-level domains, such as .com, and .org, and includes the millions of domain names (ibm.com, microsoft.com, etc.) in these categories. See Internet domain name, global namespace and XML namespace.
