Paper Abstract

In information system servers the information access task can be carried out by means of what we call an 'information engine'. The information engine composes interactive multimedia documents making use of storage and retrieval services. Therefore, it is responsible for translating each particular data structure into a common data representation, providing access to the storage systems independently of their internal per site structure. The information engine is composed of the document engine and the storage and retrieval services. The former manages data browsing, composition, formatting, and the latter the gateway to the different systems, providing a common database abstraction to the document engine.
