Abstract

The Alexandria Digital Library Project at UC Santa Barbm'a has been building an information retrieval system for geographically referenced information and datasets. To meet these requirements, we have designed a distributed Data Store to store its holdings. The library's map, image and geographical data are viewed as a collection of objects with evolving roles. Developed in the Java programming language and the HORB distributed object system, the Data Store manages these objects for flexible and scalable processing. To implement the Data Store we provide a messaging layer that allows applications to distribute processing between the Data Store and the local host. We define a data model for Data Store repositories that provide Client access to Data Store objects. We finally provide support for specialized views of these Data Store items.
