1. A computer-implemented method, in a network comprising a plurality of objects, each of said objects having an object identifier associated therewith, each object comprising a tag, wherein the tag associated with each particular object in said network encodes:

  • (i) said object identifier for said particular object, and (ii) an address or identifier resolvable to a location in said network, the method comprising;

    (A) a context-aware redirection server maintaining in a rules database, a set of rules comprising, for each object identifier of a plurality of object identifiers, a corresponding mapping to a plurality of entry points for a corresponding plurality of independent computer applications;

    (B) receiving, from a user device via a data network, and at said context-aware redirection server, a request comprising;

    (i) a particular object identifier, and (ii) contextual information from said user device, said context-aware redirection server and said particular object identifier having been determined from a specific object of said plurality of objects, said particular object identifier comprising an identifier associated with the specific object;

    (C) determining, at said context-aware redirection server, a specific entry point of said plurality of entry points associated with said particular object identifier, said determining being based on;

    (i) the particular object identifier, and said contextual information associated with the request, and (ii) said set of rules in said rules database, said specific entry point corresponding to a specific computer application of said plurality of independent computer applications associated with said particular object, wherein said particular object identifier and said contextual information associated with the request are mapped by said set of rules to said specific entry point; and

    then(D) said context-aware redirection server redirecting said user device or providing said user device access to said specific computer application via said specific entry point.
