On my first day at Google, I asked one of the developers what was “static.” He answered, “Static is what you see.” I was surprised. I thought this was a universal answer but the developers assured me that they had implemented the HTTP protocol. They said they used that protocol to communicate with their web server in addition to putting in the information about the application. So I asked, “What is Dynamic URL?”
The developer explained that it was a DIVI field that Google uses. I was not clear on the difference between an HTML element and a DIVI field so I asked, “What is a DIVI field?” He clarified that the name is short for Dynamic Web Services Extension, which he explained was another name for a DIVI field. So, what is a DIVI field? Well, it is a DIV code containing a domain name (host) that the application can reference.
