A Hypermedia Database to Manage World-Wide-Web Documents
The surge of interest in the World-Wide-Web (WWW) with its potential commercial payoff has resulted in an explosion of information as organisations join in to publish and do business on the Internet. A related development, Intranet, which basically uses the same technology to build private corporate WWW-based networks, has emerged to provide cost-effective and efficient groupware and information management solutions for organisations. As a result, the Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML), used for constructing WWW documents, has become a contender for authoring future office documents. With this scenario, this study examines WWW practices and highlights the inadequacy and drawbacks of current publishing on the WWW. This paper demonstrates the need as well as the advantages in having a hypermedia database system to maintain and manage office or WWW documents and describes the design and prototyping of a hypermedia database system.
