Z39.50/RDF Integration Project

Thursday September 16th, 1999

A project documented at Mozilla.org aims to integrate Mozilla's RDF capability with the ANSI/NISO Z39.50 specification for information retrieval in a client/server environment. The Z39.50 protocol is used in many bibliographic and digital library applications, and the project aims to make it possible to query the thousands of Z39.50 connected servers from Mozilla, with the results appearing in Mozilla's sidebar. This is another great project brought to you by that supposedly non-existent group of third-party Mozilla developers. One of the project's contacts works for the Z39.50 Maintenance Agency. Good qualification, I would think.

Thanks to Joerg Beierle for the news.

Some third party was working on this to demo something else they were working on. I know they were going to try to intergrate it into the normal codebase, but that was some time ago. Maybe they are wait for work on Mozilla 2.0 before adding it.
