An AJAX Approach to Easy and Effective Web Publishing

A framework for web publishing that harmonizes the use of desktop document creation tools

In this work, we propose a framework for web publishing that harmonizes the use of desktop document creation tools (such as the Microsoft Office suite) and classic webpage editing. Desktop tools are widely used for document authoring - for both structure and content creation. Our framework makes use of two key technologies that enable seamless publishing of such docunents onto the web: 1. WebDAV - for easy "drag and drop" of documents from the desktop PC onto web-mapped folders 2. AJAX - for a user-friendly online editing mechanism of such content We envision the framework to comprise automatic retrieval of content and publication of the same onto AJAX based webpages that enables both easy creation of the core documents as well as easy online editing, reviewing and stylizing of published content. We believe that this framework simplifies web publishing in a significant way, as also promoting more effective collaboration.
