Design and Implementation of a Dynamic Metadata Editor


Nor Adnan Yahaya, Rosiza Buang, Noor Hafizah Hassan


Vol. 8  No. 3  pp. 112-121


This paper discusses the development of a web-based editor to support the authoring and management of Dublin Core (DC) metadata for web sources, using the Resource Description Framework (RDF) as the main representation scheme. The metadata editor is dynamic in the sense that it has the capability to automatically extract relevant content of DC metadata elements from the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) website as well as other relevant DC compliant metadata from the web source in question. While the first capability makes the editor responsive to any new relevant updates to the DC metadata scheme, the second one helps in reducing the manual input of actual metadata during the authoring and management process. The editor was implemented mainly in C Sharp. Net language through the use of Microsoft Visual 2003. It uses SQL Server 7 for database management.
