Directory Access

Lightweight   The benefits of LDAP to developers and
Directory Access   bjm/whyLDAP.html              end users have been widely touted but,
Protocol (LDAP)                                  in fact, it’s system administrators who
                                                 may reap the greatest benefits from
                                                 LDAP deployment. Here, in Netscape’s

                                                 network—which shouldn’t be surprising
                                                 because Netscape’s server products and

                                                 using LDAP: a good understanding of
                                                 what LDAP can and cannot accomplish,
                                                 some familiarity with LDAP basics, and

LOGO     Turtle Tracks is a modern Logo
                ~dazuma/turtle/                interpreter and run-time environment
                                               written entirely in Java. It isn’t a direct
                                               port of an existing interpreter. Instead,
                                               it’s written from the ground up
                                               specifically for Java and designed to
                                               take advantage of the strengths of Java
                                               as a platform. Turtle Tracks is platform-
                                               independent and Internet-ready, and
                                               supports numerous advanced features
                                               such as multithreading and networking.
                                               Unlike some similar Java-based
                                               projects, Turtle Tracks is a complete
                                               implementation of Logo, supporting
                                               the same basic language syntax and
                                               semantics, and most of the same
                                               primitives as other common Logo
                                               implementations, such as Berkeley
                                               Logo. It also supports plug-in primitive
                                               sets and can be integrated with outside
                                               Java code as a scripting language.

Web cache    The sharing of caches among Web
            28258.html                     proxies is an important technique to
                                           reduce Web traffic and alleviate
                                           network bottlenecks. Nevertheless, it
                                           isn’t widely deployed due to the
                                           overhead of existing protocols. In this
                                           paper, we demonstrate the benefits of
                                           cache sharing, measure the overhead of
                                           the existing protocols, and propose a
                                           new protocol called “Summary Cache.”
Web cache       A survey of Web-caching schemes for
            .sg:8000/~liuhf/web_cache/     the Internet.
Web cache   The vast majority of current Internet
            SoftCaching/mmsp97.html        traffic is generated by Web-browsing
                                           applications. Proxy caching, which
                                           allows some of the most popular Web
                                           objects to be cached at intermediate
                                           nodes within the network, has been
                                           shown to provide substantial
                                           performance improvements. In this
                                           paper, we argue that image-specific
                                           caching strategies are desirable and
                                           will result in improved performance
                                           over approaches treating all objects
                                           alike. We propose that soft caching,
                                           where an image can be cached at one
                                           of a set of levels of resolutions, can
                                           benefit the overall performance. This is
                                           especially true when combined with
                                           cache management strategies that
                                           estimate, for each object, both the
                                           bandwidth to the server where the
                                           object is stored and the appropriate
                                           resolution level demanded by the user.

                                           We formalize the cache management
                                           problem under these conditions and

Web cache       http://vancouver-              The Cache Now! campaign is designed
               to increase the awareness and use of
                                               proxy cache on the Web. This page is
                                               now available as an Internet Draft
                                               Web cache offers a win/win situation
                                               for both content providers and users,
                                               yet is little used in North America. The
                                               concept is simple: when a Web page is
                                               requested, it’s saved to disk. If it’s
                                               required again, the disk copy is used.
                                               This technique is used in all modern
                                               browsers, such as Netscape Navigator
                                               and Internet Explorer.
Web cache    CRISP caches are structured as a
                cisi/crisp/                    collection of autonomous proxy servers
                                               that share their cache contents through
                                               a mapping service. The first paper
                                               (HOTOS-VI), which follows, describes
                                               this in high level and describes our
                                               first implementation. The second
                                               paper explores several possible
                                               implementations of a mapping service
                                               and describes Crispy Squid. The third
                                               paper (WISP98) describes Crispy Squid,
                                               our most current implementation of the
                                               CRISP Web cache architecture.
Web cache   The sharing of caches among Web
                papers/summarycache.html       proxies is an important technique
                                               to reduce Web traffic and alleviate
                                               network bottlenecks. Nevertheless,
                                               it’s not widely deployed due to the
                                               overhead of existing protocols. In this
                                               paper, we demonstrate the benefits of
                                               cache sharing, measure the overhead of
                                               the existing protocols, and propose a
                                               new protocol called ‘Summary Cache’.
                                               In this new protocol, each proxy keeps
                                               a summary of the cache directory of
                                               each participating proxy and checks
                                               these summaries for potential hits
                                               before sending any queries.

Web cache   The bandwidth demands of the World
            ~vino/web/usenix.196/          Wide Web continue to grow at a
                                           hyper-exponential rate. Given this
                                           rocketing growth, caching of Web
                                           objects as a means to reduce network
                                           bandwidth consumption is likely
                                           to be a necessity in the near future.
                                           Unfortunately, many Web caches
                                           don’t satisfactorily maintain cache
                                           consistency. This paper presents
                                           a survey of contemporary cache
                                           consistency mechanisms in use on the
                                           Internet today and examines recent

XML      This two-part tutorial demonstrates how
                                             XML can be used to improve how
                                             search engines work. It shows how to
                                             automate retrieval of search results and
                                             when those results are available in
                                             XML, instead of HTML, how much
                                             more easily they can be organized and
                                             displayed for users. This demo requires
                                             IE 5 because the XML processing is
                                             done on the client side.
