JAFER ToolKit Project - General Website


ANSI/NISO Z39.50 defines a standard protocol for communication and information retrieval between computers, typically over a network. It provides standard ways to search distributed databases, and to retrieve full-text documents, bibliographic data, images and multimedia, and can be implemented on any computer platform.

The JAFER Project (Java Access For Electronic Resources) aims to produce an easy to use, visual toolkit, which will allow users to build portals and information sources without having to deal with the technical intricacies of Z39.50.

The toolkit will have many applications for both the developer and the non-technical user. Refer to http://www.jafer.org/develop.html for software downloads, mail lists and other information.
