Through the Akoma Ntoso URI Resolver it is possible to access all legal documents that are available as URIs according to the Akoma Ntoso Naming Convention. It provides four different ways (or interfaces) to access these documents.
The Akoma Ntoso Naming Convention is a general syntax for URIs of legal documents. Details can be found here
The interfaces are different ways for the resolver to provides its services.
This is the frame interface
The Akoma Ntoso URI Resolver is based on a federated architecture. Users may make requests to different resolvers, each of which will provide exactly the same answer. The actual resolution is provided by independent services each of whom has competencies on the inner details of some document bases.

More details about the technicalities of the resolver can be found in the documentation.
These features are used to identify the actual document provided. Some features were provided via the request URI and some were added automatically by the application
