||TURK, Žiga. WODA: a slim Web Oriented Database. V:
FONG, Joseph (ur.). Heterogeneous and Internet Databases : proceedings of the
9th International databases (IDC'99). Hong Kong: University, 1999, str.
||Typical data that is published on the Web fits into a
common schema and layout, for example homepages, course information,
bibliographies, mailing list archives, documentary data etc. But with the
exception of large sites maintained by media companies, databases are not used
to deliver such information. Instead, most people use various HTML editors to
craft individual Web pages and the file system is used to store them as files.
The author claims that the reason for this is that most of the mammoth database
systems are overkill - in price, use of system and human resources - to be used
for these rather simple tasks. Since 1995, the author has been developing a
database system that simplifies the management of multimedia databases - WODA.
The acronym stands for Web Oriented Database. Such databasesenable the creation,
maintenance and use of database systems using a Web browser, and support the
conventions of the Web such as integration with Email and the commonly used
search syntax. Advanced features of WODA include asoftware agent and an
application generator. WODA is easy to install and databases can be set up in
minutes. This, rather than indexing speed, scaling, transaction processing etc.
has been the design focus of WODA. WODA development started before the big
database players offered useful solutions for the Web. It remains competitive in
non-mission critical application that must be developed rapidly, on a tight
budget and where not much time can be spent on maintenance. Most importantly,
WODA makes the delivery of Web pages out of a database simple enough for
non-commercial web sites and therefore educates towards the proper way of
publishing information on the Web [COBISS.SI-ID 1023841]
