    Semistructured Data: The TSIMMIS Experience

    Advances in Databases and Information Systems '97

    St Petersburg, 2nd - 5th September 1997


    J. Hammer, J. McHugh & H. Garcia-Molina


    In this paper we discuss the management of semi-structured data, i.e., data that has irregular or dynamically changing structure.

    We describe components of the Stanford TSIMMIS Project that help extract semi-structured data from Web pages, that allow the storage and querying of semi-structured data, and that allow its browsing through the World Wide Web.

    A prototype implementation of the TSIMMIS system as described here is currently installed and running in the database group testbed.
