Cyberworld 2002, IEEE Computer Society Press, pp.
455-462, November 2002.
Abstract - Topological
modeling is a research field that is still in its infant
state even though theoretical frameworks are established
and various potential applications are proposed. This
is due to the lack of design patterns that are shared
among researchers and developers of modeling tools. This
paper presents some useful patterns derived from experience
in developing interactive topological modeling tools,
which will accelerate progress in this field.
- A. Imai and S. Yukita, "HLPM - A High Level Protocol
Monitoring Tool for Education," Cyberworld 2002,
IEEE Computer Society Press, pp. 397-404, November
Abstract - A high level
protocol monitoring tool (HLPM) for education is presented.
This tool provides an easy interface for learners who
have little technical background to understand the design
and implementation of Internet application protocols.
Using this tool, learners can monitor, test and write
interaction scenarios of an application level protocol.
The tool incorporates the FESI Script (an interpreter
language by Jean-Marc Luring) with which learners can
design, implement, and test new network services. HLPM
runs on any operating systems that run Java Virtual Machine.
The learners can understand the mechanism of a high level
protocol by monitoring, and testing the protocol messages.
In addition, they can learn how to make the network services
by describing the script related to the network. In a
word, HLPM offers learners an active study environment
of high level protocol by operating an actual network.
- A. Imai and S. Yukita, "RDF Model and Relational
Metadata," Proceedings of the 5th International
Conference on Human and Computer 2002, pp. 277-282,
Abstract - In this paper
we propose a new metadata type "Relational Metadata"
that contains the relational information for retrieving
WEB contents. It is based on the eXtensible Markup Language
(XML) and using E-R (Entity-Relationship) model of relational
datadase (RDB). Relational Metadata is compatible with
Resource Description Framework (RDF) through a translator
program that can convert Relational Metadata to RDF. The
goal of Relational Metadata is to provide the WEB contents
creators with easy control over metadata and with automatic
RDB integration. Using Relational Metadata, the user can
search target information with RDB easily and efficiently.
Its retrieval functions are easily customized and optimized
according to the personal profile.
