A Community of Agents Maintaining Links in the World Wide Web (Preliminary Report)
A Community of Agents Maintaining Links in the World Wide Web (Preliminary Report)
In this paper we present an agent architecture to maintain link integrity in the World-Wide Web. It consists of a community of agents collaborating to provide services to users, authors and administrators. In summary, agents maintain link integrity when documents are updated, moved, or when WWW sites are reorganised. They also provide authors and administrators with usage information such as documents that are currently bookmarked or documents that are no longer accessed. The architecture is also able to advertise new versions of documents. At a low-level, we use a distributed garbage collection algorithm to trace links and maintain their integrity.

Abstract

In this paper we present an agent architecture to maintain link integrity in the World-Wide Web. It consists of a community of agents collaborating to provide services to users, authors and administrators. In summary, agents maintain link integrity when documents are updated, moved, or when WWW sites are reorganised. They also provide authors and administrators with usage information such as documents that are currently bookmarked or documents that are no longer accessed. The architecture is also able to advertise new versions of documents. At a low-level, we use a distributed garbage collection algorithm to trace links and maintain their integrity.
