Thank you Gary,

just to be sure I understood correctly:
with this solution, in order to inspect an object I would have to load
a web page at a specific URL. That URL,
through a separate thread, would access the object on the fly and
display the content in a web page?!
Is there a reason to link objects to different URLs or I could link
many of them to the same URL?

Thanks, Jacopo
