This Web Service implements identifiers.org Compact ID metadata extraction API for programmatic access to metadata resolution services.
Running the Metadata Resolution Service
The only requirement for running the resolution service is having a working installation of Docker.
Although this service is part of identifiers.org Satellite Deployments, it can be run in standalone mode, i.e. if you just want to bring this service up for programmatic access to metadata information associated with a given Compact ID.
Download, from this repo, the file named docker-compose-standalone.yml, and issue the following command:
docker-compose -f docker-compose-standalone.yml up -d
This will launch the Metadata Resolution Service, if you'd like to stop it, just run:
docker-compose -f docker-compose-standalone.yml down
How to query the Metadata Resolution Service
There is a Java based library, libapi, that implements a client for this Web Service.
Please, refer to its documentation on how to connect to identifiers.org Web Services.
Documentation for developers will be coming soon, through the repository Wiki.
