    Multimedia XML data is a collection of multiple types of data sets tagged by XML elements. Such XML data can be retrieved not only by a Boolean connection with keywords but also by tag element-based query languages. In many cases, however, keyword-based queries result in either too many hits or too few results. It is not clear either what query to formulate in order to obtain a “good” ... View full abstract»

    Describes a technique to automatically generate a set of Java Beans accessing data encoded according to some XML document type definition (DTD). This technique does not support any XML-based markup but can be applied to a sufficiently large class of XML-compliant markup language to make the approach of practical interest. The generated Java Beans can be used as data accessors to deliver dynamic or... View full abstract»

    Call centers are at the core of today's customer relations management. Increasingly, they are also utilized internally as competence and knowledge centers. Turning them into service centers of the future (SCotF) requires parallel communication over several channels, including Internet services, in a distributed synchronous fashion. In this paper, we show that the emerging XML standards provide a g... View full abstract»

    Current distance learning is mostly based on Web technologies. However, course materials announced as Web documents do not have a normalized structure. It is difficult for students to realize where they are in a Web navigation graph. On the other hand, a text book has a fixed structure, such as the hierarchy of chapters and the index. A text book reader knows how to start searching for information... View full abstract»

    The widespread use of the World Wide Web in recent years has opened up universal access to a vast number of information sources. An obstacle that affects the access to Web data is the lack of an information structure among and within Web pages. This raises a need for structured Web page management for efficient Web information searching. Our proposed structured Web page management is built in two ... View full abstract»

    Like other authors, we believe that hypermedia systems, and especially the World Wide Web, can increase and improve their functionality by means of making the semantics of the information system structure explicit. In this paper, we justify the need for a cognitive model in the conception of hypermedia systems. A semantic-dynamic model is presented that provides a complete, adaptive and evolving c...

    Studies the buffer-size setting problem for distributed database systems. The main goal is to minimize physical I/O while achieving better buffer utilization at the same time. As opposed to traditional buffer management strategies, where a limited knowledge of user access patterns is analyzed and used, our buffer allocation mechanism extracts knowledge from historical reference streams and then de...

    Traditional information retrieval techniques require documents that share enough words to build semantic links between them. This kind of technique is greatly affected by two factors: synonymy (different words having the same meaning) and polysemy (a word with several meanings), also known as ambiguity. Synonymy may result in a loss of semantic difference, while polysemy may lead to wrong semantic... View full abstract»

    Constraint Databases (CDBs) are the combination of Constraint Logic Programming (CLP, which is one of the strategic directions in computing research) and database technology. CDBs represent a new kind of post-relational databases, naturally extending relational, deductive, or object-oriented databases by making feasible the use of constraints to represent possibly infinite but representable comple...

    The explosive growth of data on the World Wide Web makes information management and knowledge discovery increasingly difficult. Applying database techniques to manage Web information can help in solving these problems. One difficulty encountered is that Web documents, unlike structured databases, contain unstructured and semi-structured data. Our hypothesis is that creating ontologies to describe ...

    Web based distance learning is a trend of instruction delivery. One of the most difficult challenges of such a learning mechanism is the assessment of students' learning criteria. It is hard to judge the behavior of a student since the instructor is separated spatially and temporally from the students. However, it is possible to rely on some Web based tools to keep track of a student's course atte... View full abstract»

    In this investigation, we discuss optimization issues of meta-queries for databases. Since traditional techniques can't be applied to meta-queries, we propose a new technique of cost-based optimization without the evaluation of meta-objects. For this purpose, we introduce signature techniques and extend database schemes View full abstract»
