PID resolving process

The PID points to an URL that points or refers to the data through a level of indirection. So instead of reaching the data pointed, for example, by ( the user takes the PID referring to the data (21.17101/EXAMPLE), pass it to a resolver ( that redirects him to the above URL.

For applications, it is simpler to automate the process giving the PID (21.17101/EXAMPLE) to the resolver REST interface API ( obtaining back a JSON description of the PID in which there is a field contains the corresponding URL.

Now it is time to experiment.
