Term: Entity

A term synonymous with MeshObject. When used in an InfoGrid context, it is used primarily to make the distinction between things that can exist independently of other things (called Entities), as opposed to things that cannot (called Relationships).

The InfoGrid use of the term Entity is similar to the use of "entity" in the definition of HTTP. However, it is different from the use of the term in entity-relationship modeling: the term "entity" used there is called EntityType in InfoGrid.
