Abstract

The InfoHarness system is aimed at providing integrated and rapid access to huge amounts of heterogeneous information independent of its type, representation, and location. This is achieved by extracting metadata and associating it with the original information. The metadata extraction methods ensure rapid and largely automatic creation of information repositories. A stable hierarchy of abstract classes is proposed to organize the processing and representation needs of different kinds of information. An extensible hierarchy of terminal classes simplifies support for new information types and utilization of new indexing technologies. InfoHarness repositories may be accessed through Mosaic or any other HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) compliant browser."
