Abstract

The STYX prototype illustrates a new way to publish and query XML resources on the Web. It has been developed as part of the C-Web (Community Web) project1 whose main objective is to support the sharing, integration and retrieval of information in Web communities concerning a specific domain of interest.

STYX is based on a simple but nevertheless powerful model for publishing and querying XML resources [1]. It implements a set of Web-based tools for creating and exploiting semantic portals to XML Web resources. The main functions of such a portal can be summarized as follows: (i) XML resources can be published/unpublished on the fly; (ii) structured queries can be formulated by taking into consideration the conceptual representation of a specific domain in form of an ontology; (iii) query results can be customized for display and further exploitation.
