    XML is becoming a standard for data communication over the Internet. Like HTML, it is a markup language, but it supports a richer set of features, such as user-defined tags that allow both data and descriptive information about data to be represented within a single document. At the same time, presentation aspects remain decoupled from data representation. XML's flexibility lets it serve as a meta... View full abstract»

    A recent study found that supply-chain problems cost companies between 9 and 20 percent of their value over a six-month period (T.J. Becker, 2000). The problems range from part shortages to poorly utilized plant capacity. When you place this in the context of the overall business-to-business (B2B) market expected to reach US$7 trillion by 2004 (37 percent of which is projected to be e-commerce sal...

    Web portals and ISPs such as AOL, Microsoft Network, and Yahoo have grown more than tenfold in the past five years (1996-2001). Despite their scale, growth rates, and rapid evolution of content and features, these sites and other “giant-scale” services like instant messaging and Napster must be always available. Many other major Web sites such as eBay, CNN, and Wal-Mart, have similar a... View full abstract»

    Over the past several years, traditional carriers and Internet service providers (ISPs) have invested billions of dollars deploying high-speed, high-capacity IP networks. This expansion is intended to lay the foundation for a network that could accommodate exponential traffic growth and deliver new revenue-generating services. Traffic from advanced services incorporating elements such as on-demand... View full abstract»

    The article provides a primer on Web resource caching, one technology used to make the Web scalable. Web caching can reduce bandwidth usage, decrease user-perceived latencies, and reduce Web server loads transparently. As a result, caching has become a significant part of the Web's infrastructure. Caching has even spawned a new industry: content delivery networks, which are also growing at a fanta... View full abstract»

    High-performance Web sites rely on Web server `farms', hundreds of computers serving the same content, for scalability, reliability, and low-latency access to Internet content. Deploying these scalable farms typically requires the power of distributed or clustered file systems. Building Web server farms on file systems complements hierarchical proxy caching. Proxy caching replicates Web content th... View full abstract»

    The Disciple and Manifold (I. Marsic, 1999; 2001) frameworks, developed at Rutgers Center for Advanced Information Processing (CAIP), take a data-centric approach to the development of collaborative multimedia applications. (Disciple is an abbreviation for Distributed System for Collaborative Information Processing and Learning.) This approach represents data and modifies it in a generic way via a...
