Abstract

The work of the Open Hypermedia Systems Working Group (OHSWG) has lead to the creation of several hypermedia models and a common protocol for Navigational Hypertext. However none of these include a working model of context. In this paper we present how we have extended the Fundamental Open Hypermedia Model (FOHM) to include context and behaviour. We then present Auld Leaky, a lightweight contextual link server that stores and serves structures represented in FOHM, using Context to filter query results.
