Part II. Groupware Docbases

A discussion server creates a kind of document database, or docbase, that can store a wealth of semistructured information. But Internet messaging tools—mailreaders and newsreaders—use fixed-function message templates. In this part, we explore how to build web docbases that aren’t bound by fixed templates. We’ll see how to activate the groupware features latent in web docbases, and we’ll develop a complete system to create, publish, and search them.
