A query related to the concept of a Node

Does each FILE belongs its own (separate) Node and Node Id  ?

For example - 

If a folder  "myFolder"  contains three files - "file1", "file2", "file3"  then 

"myFolder"   --->  Node Id 1

"file1"           ----> Node Id 2

"file2"           ----> Node Id 3

"file3"           ----> Node Id 4

So, there will be four different Nodes with different Node Ids. 

Is this understanding correct ?

Please help my understanding related to Node concept in Alfresco.

Regards,

Santosh.

Re: A query related to the concept of a Node

yes correct, each object (folder, file, person, site etc.) in Alfresco repository gets a unique nodeRef. 

Noderef is combination of :

store_type: e.g. workspace
store_id: e.g. SpacesStore
id: UUID

Please read this doc, its a good read: https://docs.alfresco.com/5.2/concepts/dev-repository-concepts.html
