Subject RE: [RT] Linking revisited: A general linking system
Date Mon, 14 Oct 2002 22:33:19 GMT
I confess I don't know much about Forrest, but it seems to me that a
"resource" maps to a "topic" in topicmap jargon, and a "resourcemap" or
"linkmap" (in Jeff's terminology) maps to a "topicmap". Is there some reason
not to make use of this technology? There is an XML syntax for topicmaps
(XTM) and some developing tools for managing them (e.g. tm4j). I know
topicmaps have been mentioned before  ... but do Forrest people think
TopicMaps are overkill, perhaps?

Cheers!
