    802.11a represents the third generation of wireless networking standards and technology (behind 802.11 and .11b). It was actually approved as a standard earlier than 802.11b, but it presented a greater engineering challenge, and was delayed. Advances in technology (Moore's Law continues to prove true) helped Internet engineers overcome those challenges in a cost-effective manner and prepare the sp... View full abstract»

    The paper considers the Araneus data model which employs database techniques and wrappers to extract data from and generate Web sites. The project features a logical model that abstracts physical aspects of Web sites. Araneus provides high-level descriptions of pages that let us both extract data from the Web and generate Web sites from databases. View full abstract»

    By associating meaning with content, the Semantic Web will facilitate search, interoperability, and the composition of complex applications. The paper discusses the Semantic Content Organization and Retrieval Engine (SCORE, see vvww.voquette.com), which is based on research transferred from the University of Georgia's Large Scale Distributed Information Systems. SCORE belongs to a new generation o... View full abstract»

    The numbers are staggering. In a chilling report, the U.S. Institute of Medicine (10M) estimates that somewhere between 44,000 and 98,000 Americans die each year from "avoidable medical errors" costing the nation about US$17 billion to US$29 billion annually. Errors include failing to make timely and accurate diagnosis, selecting improper treatment, and following a treatment plan incorrectly. For ... View full abstract»

    For pt.1 see ibid., vol.6, no.3, p. 89-91 (2002). As I discussed in my previous column, each different style of middleware promotes one or more interaction models that determine how applications based on that middleware communicate and work with each other. It is difficult to say what the best interaction models would be for Web services, mainly because the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is still... View full abstract»

    Spring was a notable season in the virus world as Klez edged out SirCam as the all-time most virulent virus, and another virus landmark emerged with Simile.D - a polymorphic, entry-point-obfuscating virus that can infect both Windows and Linux platforms. Unlike the costly and destructive Nimba and Code Red viruses, Klez and Simile.D are more nuisance than financial nightmare. Nonetheless, they rep... View full abstract»

    Web services are extremely flexible. Most advantageously, a developer of Web services need not know who or what will use the services being provided. The paper discusses current standards for Web services, directory services and the Semantic Web. It considers how agents extend Web services in several important ways. View full abstract»

    Researchers at Argonne National Laboratory, the University of Southern California, and IBM have taken a major step toward combining the commercial promise of Web services with the scientific principles of grid computing, in which far-flung resources can be dynamically allocated. The Open Grid Services Architecture defines the mechanisms for creating, managing, and exchanging information, among ent... View full abstract»

    The Extensible Markup Language has become the standard for information interchange on the Web. We study the data- and document-centric uses of XML management systems (XMLMS). We want to provide XML data users with a guideline for choosing the data management system that best meets their needs. Because the systems we test are first-generation approaches, we suggest a hypothetical design for a usefu... View full abstract»

    The future of Internet radio became a little clearer when the U.S. Librarian of Congress cut in half the proposed royalty rate Internet broadcasters must pay to record labels and artists. Artists and record labels were unhappy at the reduction in rate, while small Webcasters predicted bankruptcy for all but the largest Internet broadcasters. Earlier, Librarian of Congress James H. Billington had r... View full abstract»

    Developers typically measure a Web application's quality of service in terms of response time, throughput, and availability. Poor QoS translates into frustrated customers, which can lead to lost business opportunities. At the same time, company expenditures on a Web site's IT infrastructure are a function of the site's expected traffic. Ideally, you want to spend enough, and no more, allocating re...

    The paper discusses the Debye (Data Extraction By Example) environment which lets users extract and manage semistructured data available from Web sources, using an extended form of nested tables as its fundamental paradigm. Currently, the Debye tools are fully implemented as prototypes for applications that use data from heterogeneous Web sources. For instance, developers have recently used Debye ...

    Whether buried deep inside ISPs, or camouflaged as DSL routers, network address translators (NATs) have become a ubiquitous tool in the Internet landscape. NATs enable telco and cable operators to prevent commercial use of consumer accounts. They also let home users run open community access wireless networks off a single purchased account. It is what NATs disable, however, that makes them nefario... View full abstract»

    WebCUS uses XML and XSL to generate Web-based update interfaces with integrated access control mechanisms for arbitrary database schemas. WebCUS's adaptability allowed us to reduce development time and costs in building update interfaces for managing the content databases of the 2002 Vienna International Festival (VIF) and the Austrian Academy of Sciences (AAS) Web sites. We examine the WebCUS arc... View full abstract»

    Many of the Web applications around us are data-intensive; their main purpose is to present a large amount of data to their users. Most online trading and e-commerce sites fall into this category, as do digital libraries and institutional sites describing private and public organizations. Several commercial Web development systems aid rapid creation of data-intensive applications by supporting sem... View full abstract»

    We present our XML-based Distributed Metadata Server (Dimes) - which comprises a flexible metadata model, search software, and a Web-based interface - to support multilevel metadata access, and introduce two prototype systems. Our Scientific Data and Information Super Server (SDISS), which is based on Dimes and GDS, solves accurate data-search and outdated data-link problems by integrating metadat... View full abstract»
