Please have a read of this forum posting at hibernate.org. Can somebody explain what's the difference between canonical data and reference data ?
Are postcodes canonical/reference data ?
Are states canonical/reference data ?
My understanding is that canonical data are quite concrete and will not change often.Whereas reference data are prone to changes ? e.g. the categories of blog items on my weblog may change - depending how wide I read - thus, it is reference data.


I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
