Abstract

The ubiquity of the World Wide Web offers an ideal opportunity for the deployment of highly distributed applications. Now that connectivity is no longer an issue, the attention has turned to providing a middleware infrastructure that will sustain data sharing among Web-accessible databases. We present a dynamic architecture and system for describing, locating, and accessing data from Web-accessible databases. We propose the use of flexible organizational constructs service links and coalitions to facilitate data organization, discovery, and sharing among Internet-accessible databases. A language is also proposed to support the definition and manipulation of these constructs. The implementation combines Java, CORBA, database API (JDBC), agent, and database technologies to support a scalable and portable architecture interconnecting large networks of heterogeneous and autonomous databases. We report on an experiment to provide uniform access to a Web of healthcare-related databases.
