Imagine a scenario where on a page a user needs to relate various
resources together - in its simplest form a copy/paste scenario.
The resource being pasted is identified with a URI. Now a request is made
to the service containing that URI of the resource being
related to the receving resource.... How do I translate that URI to the
actual to be related resource?

The jersey container already knows how to do this when it receives a
request on that resource....
Do I get access to that part of the container code so I can determine the
resource identified by a URI received as data ,
for example as a @QueryParam?

It is impossible to sharpen a pencil with a blunt axe. It is equally vain
to try to do it with ten blunt axes instead -- Edsger W. Dijkstra
