Creating Containers or Binaries
You have the option to create a container or binary. When you create a container by selecting "container" for the "Type" field, you may provide an identifier and click "Add" to create a new container with that identifier.
If you choose to enter an identifier, it may be a simple or namespaced name. If you opt not to enter an identifier, a new resource will be created with an automatically generated name and path.
When entering an identifier for a resource, certain characters have specific meanings that you should understand to avoid errors.
- The colon ":" character is used to separate namespace prefixes from local names. If a colon is entered in a name it must be preceded by a valid registered namespace prefix.
- The slash "/" character is used to denote hierarchical path separation. Multiple resources will be created in the event that slashes exist in your specified ID.
When you choose to create a new binary, a file selection form element is presented. You must select a file that will be the content of the binary. A description of the binary, termed a nonRdfSourceDescription, will also be created.
It is not recommended to upload files larger than 1GB using this HTML form. To ingest large files, please refer to the RESTful HTTP API.
