Reviews and Testimonials

This book describes the state-of-art technologies in building web-powered databases being written by pioneer researchers in the field. Readers can understand various fundamental issues including querying logic, [content] management, low-level programming, cache management, heterogeneous and distributed systems, and security policies. The authors present case studies to demonstrate the use of web-database in applications such as web mining, tutor payment system, product catalogue, and online tests.
