The Warwick Framework: A Container Architecture for Aggregating Sets ofMetadata
Lagoze, Carl; Lynch, Clifford A.; Daniel, Ron, Jr.
We describe a result of the June 1996 Warwick Metadata II Workshop. This Warwick Framework is a container architecture for aggregating logically, and perhaps physically, distinct packages of metadata. This architecture allows separate administration and access to metadata packages, provides for varying syntax in each package in conformance with semantic requirements, and it promotes interoperability and extensibility by allowing tools and agents to selectively access and manipulate individual packages and ignore others. At the conclusion of the paper we propose implementations of the Framework in HTML, MIME, SGML, and distributed objects.
