Scholarcy highlights

  • In large data- and access-intensive web sites, efficient and reliable access is hard to achieve. This situation gets even worse for web sites providing precise structured query facilities and requiring topicality of the presented information even in face of a highly dynamic content
  • The achievement of these partly conflicting goals is strongly influenced by the approach chosen for page generation, ranging from composing a web page upon a user's request to its generation in advance
  • The official Austrian web-based tourism information and booking system TIScover tries to reconcile these goals by employing a hybrid approach of page generation
  • In TIScover, web pages are generated on request in order to support precise structured queries on the content managed by a database system
  • This paper discusses the hybrid approach as realized in TIScover, focussing in particular on the concepts used for pre-generation
