Resolves a relative URI against an absolute URI. If $base is specified, the URI is resolved relative to that base. If $base is not specified, the base is set to the base-uri property from the static context, if the property exists; if it does not exist, an error is thrown. This XQuery function backs up the SPARQL IRI() function.
|$relative||A URI reference to resolve against the base.|
|$base||An absolute URI to use as the base of the resolution.|
If $base is specified, it is assumed to be an absolute URI and $relative is assumed to be an absolute or a relative URI reference. If $relative is a relative URI reference, it is resolved against $base, using an algorithm such as the ones described in [RFC 2396] or [RFC 3986], and the resulting absolute URI reference is returned.
Resolving a URI does not dereference it. This is merely a syntactic operation on two character strings.
