    WWW Access to a Philological Application

    Advances in Databases and Information Systems '97

    St Petersburg, 2nd - 5th September 1997


    S. Calabretto & B. Rumpler


    Our project enhances the accessibility of ancient manuscripts and provide new ways of working with them through a Web server.

    More precisely, we aim to produce a software tool allowing the historians, and more particularly codicologists and philologists, to read the manuscripts, write annotations, and navigate between the words of the transcription and the matching piece of image in the numerized picture of the manuscript alongside the Internet network.

    A local version of this application is already available. In this paper, we present the design of the PhilologicalWeb Application.

    It is based on the ActiveX-based approach for database remote access. We describe how the Philological Application is made available through a server interface accessed by remote clients.
