XLinkProxy: External Linkbases with XLink

Paolo Ciancarini, Federico Folli, Davide Rossi, Fabio Vitali


In the linking model of the World Wide Web each link is stored in the referring document within an attribute of the A tag. All the hyperlink defined this way can reference a single resource or a single fragment. With the evolution of Web technologies more powerful linking languages (XLink and XPointer) have been proposed. Here we introduce XLinkProxy, a Web application that allows sophisticated hyperlink (defined using XLink and XPointer) to be defined outside referring documents, giving users the chance to build dynamic multidestination, multidirectional links databases. XLinkProxy has been designed in order to be used with standard Web browsers and is implemented as a filtering HTTP proxy.
