Definitions for "Namespace"
Keywords:  uri, xmlns, scope, schema, dublin
In general, a namespace uniquely identifies a set of names so that there is no ambiguity when objects having different origins but the same names are mixed together; a set of names in which all names are unique. The use of namespaces allows different organizations or standards to use the same names to have different meanings; the namespace can be used to identify the authority who defines the semantic meaning of a term. Essentially, the namespace qualifies a term. For example, the name "net" might have one meaning in the fishmonger namespace, and the same name, "net," have a different meaning in the the volleyball player namespace. A namespace groups identifiers in a named scope. By so specifying the scope of identifiers within the namespace of the group to which they belong, the potential for conflict between identifiers is greatly reduced. An XML Namespace is usually a Uniform Resource Indicator (URI), because the namespace may be associated with the web site or page of that URI, and because the URI is likely to be a unique name.
Defines the scope of the terms used by a metadata scheme. An element called Creator, for instance, may carry different connotations depending on whether it emanates from the Dublin Core namespace or a local, domain-specific implementation.
Provide a simple method for qualifying element and attribute names XML documents by associating them with namespaces identified by URI references; namespaces provide a means to: Distinguish between element and attribute names from different schemas or vocabularies, even if those elements or attributes have the same name Group elements and attributes together to facilitate processing See the W3C Namespaces Specification for more information.

a dictionary of variable, function, and class names
an area where Perl keeps a list of all the names of variables and subroutines that are available to a program
The place where a variable is stored. Namespaces are implemented asdictionary. There is the local, global and builtins namespace and thenested namespaces in objects (in methods). Namespaces supportmodularity by preventing naming conflicts. For instance, thefunctions and aredistinguished by their namespaces. Namespaces also aid readabilityand maintainability by making it clear which modules implement afunction. For instance, writing random.seed() or itertools.izip() makes it clear that those functions areimplemented by the random and itertools modulesrespectively.
WikiFAQ's pages are divided into various categories called "Namespaces." For more information see Help:Namespaces
A method of classifying pages. Articles have the Main namespace, with other namespaces including Talk:, User:, Memory Alpha:, and MediaWiki:. See Help:Namespace
A way to classify pages. Wikibooks has namespaces for textbook modules, pages about Wikibooks, Userpages, Special pages, Template pages, Cookbook pages and talk pages, among others. See also Help:Namespace.[ edit

a way of grouping different types of functionality together
a way to segregate one type of name from another
Namespaces are used to segregate function and variable names. Each data type has its own namespace. This means that you can use the same variable name for different data types. For example, $foo, @foo, and %foo are different data types with the same name. You can create your own namespace with the Package keyword. See Chapter 14, "What Are Objects?" for more information.
To namespace a node is to put unnecessary information in the title. Most often associated with song lyrics, an example of namespacing would be titling a node " The Beatles - Hold My Hand" as opposed to simply " Hold My Hand" and including in the writeup itself that it's a single by The Beatles. Don't namespace. Put stuff where it goes.
All the nodes in a domain's large inverted tree, beginning at the root (.) domain.

In general, a namespace is an abstract container providing context for the items (names, or technical terms, or words) it holds and allows disambiguation of items having the same name (residing in different namespaces).
