Normally in computer language, a resource refers to anything that can be stored on a computer and represented as a stream of bits: a document, a row in a database, or the result of running an algorithm.
In case of web services anything which is accessed by the URL you supply is a resource.
Note: URL is not a resource, it is just a label that identifies the resource. The XML, JSON, text etc are the representations of the resources.
