Diχeminator: A Profile-Based Selective Dissemination System for XML Documents
Current approaches for the selective dissemination of XML documents are not suitable for an automatic adaptation of user profiles to her current preferences because either they rely on user preferences specified by filling up forms or they require to process a high number of documents. In this paper we present the architecture of Diχeminator, a selective dissemination system for XML documents based on profiles. Profiles, represented through XML Schema, concisely represent the kind of documents a user subscribing the service is interested in. Profiles are used for filtering out irrelevant documents relying on user preferences. Moreover, profiles are kept up to date taking into account the documents the user effectively accesses or refuses.
