Validator for IVOA Identifiers

A validator for IVOA identifiers, checking conformity to version 2 of the specification.

The service returns results in a tabular format, where an identifier is valid if no row with msg_type="ERROR" is present.

As per DALI, the format of the table returned can be controlled through the RESPONSEFORMAT parameter; for machine consumption, the most useful values for that parameter are probably json and votable.

The code used here is available at

The IVOA Identifier to validate

The Data Center is currently running in emergency mode after our database server failed catastrophically (see our blog for infos and updates).

This means, in particular, that services built on top of large tables may currently be broken. Since our replacement server is much slower than our usual machine, restoring them will take quite some time.
