First International Conference on the World- Wide Web (WWW'94).
Workshop "Offering the same information via multiple services",
Geneva, May 1994
Keywords: Multiple service integration, legacy systems,
World Wide Web (W3,WWW), interactive session, textual interface,
Like the data migration research community, the field of
a multiple service integration is confronted with legacy systems.
Despite of the new interfaces providing uniform access to
variety of information (e.g. WWW, Gopher), plenty of information
is still accessed using interactive services with textual
interfaces. The lucky case are interfaces based on DEC's VT100
or IBM's 3270 standards. To allow access to interactive services,
the straight forward solution was the introduction of special
URI-Schemes (telnet, rlogin and tn3270). Nevertheless is the
user forced to fight a new interface almost every time he
hits an interactive session. We introduce a translation server
to allow easier access to interactive sessions.
