Objectives and Approach

The overall objective of the PODA-SAX project is to pull together the results of the current work on Office Document Architecture (ODA) and available OSI components and to demonstrate the connection of heterogeneous office systems based on ODA and OSI. This will show that ODA is relevant to all the facilities of a general networked office system, does not technically restrict functionality or choice of products, and offers positive advantages in system integration. The work will be based on the system architecture stemming from the PODA-2 project in order to integrate ODA more fully into the functionalities of an existing office system.

In PODA-2 (project 2374), the ODA standard has been advanced in areas such as partial documents, hypertext, data in documents, 2-D tables, automatic content generation, annotation and revision control. In addition, the relationship to relevant standards from OSI communication protocols and security concepts is being established. Some of the work will result in prototypes.

The PODA-SAX project will capitalise on PODA-2 by pooling its results with those of related projects in order to demonstrate an integrated ODA-based office system. This system will include the achievements of the PODA-2 work which demonstrated the interchange of compound documents between different editing systems. Most importantly, however, it will:
