July 2002Project presentation REGNET 4 Overall Planning Production of the first version of the REGNET System, as a standalone English only version. 3 iterations of 2 months: Iteration 1 (elaboration phase): Architecture validation Iteration 2 (construction phase): Regnet portal Iteration 3 (construction phase): Regnet system version 1
July 2002Project presentation REGNET 5 IT1: Architecture validation Prototypes: EbXML messages communication for B2B interaction. TopicMap generation and visualisation. Search and retrieval. CatXML standard for eBusiness catalogue management. Technology validation for Portal based on Apache/Jetspeed and Wireless communication. Publisher technology validation.
July 2002Project presentation REGNET 6 IT2: Portal GUI Mockup User authentication and profile management Ontology: User profile storage into dbXML database Portlet design & integration of: Search & retrieval Eshop Data Entry required tools and applications Analysis of others sub-systems
July 2002Project presentation REGNET 7 IT3: Regnet system version 1 Ebusiness: Product catalogue management eProcurement Cultural heritage data management Publisher Topic Map: Storage into XML database Topic Map visualisation tool based on VRML Overall integration

July 2002Project presentation REGNET 10 Engineering point of view Portal: Apache/JetSpeed Nodes: PHP, Microsoft/ASP, Java/J2EE Databases: TextML Server (XML DBMS), MySQL (RDBMS) Ontology: TopicMap (XTM) Middleware: SOAP: TheMindElectric / GLUE B2B collaboration: ebXML messaging (JAXM) Catalogue exchanges: catXML
July 2002Project presentation REGNET 11 Portal This version of the Portal prototype meets the following requirements: Availability of tools and applications developed by the various partners; Integration of the Search And Retrieval module through SOAP; Integration of the Data Entry module through SOAP; Integration of external applications through HTTP Forward; Users registration and authentication; User profiles synchronization with the Ontology repository; Support for registered users and system administration. Web and Wap Access (Just few functionalities)

July 2002Project presentation REGNET 15 Search & Retrieval Search Two levels (Simple, Advanced) Search transformation to query format Query sent to reference system Retrieval The results from the Reference System are transformed by the means of XSL stylesheet transformation and presented to the user. The presentation includes navigation through the current result set.

July 2002Project presentation REGNET 17 Ontology – SOAP implementation Essential for the integration of the Ontology with all other REGNET modules Deployed on Apache SOAP v2.2 Based on Apache Xindice v1.0 (XML:DB API) Developed in Java
July 2002Project presentation REGNET 18 Ontology – SOAP implementation Ontology Apache Xindice DB Apache Tomcat Apache SOAP Ontology SOAP methods REGNET Module XML:DB API Soap request Soap response
July 2002Project presentation REGNET 19 Ontology – SOAP implementation Ontology-SOAP methods developed for: Adding an XML file / Collection to Ontology Listing the XML files / Collections of the Ontology Deleting an XML file / Collection from Ontology Retrieving an XML file / Collection from Ontology Checking for the existence of a user profile Creating unique keys to be used by all REGNET modules
July 2002Project presentation REGNET 20 Topic Map Generator The Topic Map Generator Tool is based on the TM4J, which is a Topic Map engine for Java. Topic Map Generator Tool is a topic map "engine, which processes files conforming to the XML Topic Maps (XTM) specification and stores them either in memory or in a persistent store, providing access via a Java API. In REGNET the persistent store is Xindice (a native XML database).

July 2002Project presentation REGNET 22 Topic Map 3D Navigation The current version of this tool operates as follows: Load a Topic Map or XML file Then the file is parsed and if errors appear the tool will ignore the errors and generate a 2D tree The tool also displays statistics of the Topic Map file (number of topics, associations etc.) Then the topic map file can be generated in VRML and saved in the desired directory. Once the VRML file is generated then the result can be browsed using a VRML plug-in.

July 2002Project presentation REGNET 25 E-Business Presentation side present all the necessary text and graphical information to the user (customer). The PHP methods and the standard features of the browsers implement these functions. This subsystem also provide the customer all the necessary interactive input forms and interactive interfaces. Distributed Search & Retrieval Based on Z39.50 protocol This component includes YAZ client, which prepares and send the RPN query to the remote databases. It also receives the responses from them and sends them to presentation side.
July 2002Project presentation REGNET 26 E-Business (2) Core System It allows user to create the orders, to change them, choose the method and accomplish the payment for the products. It is strongly related with a mechanism of the credit card validation. It is also necessary to appoint that all the input information about the credit card details should be done in a protected way, using the SSL protocol. Product Catalogues – Eshop It contains the database, which stores the information of the product, such as information of its name, price, description etc.

July 2002Project presentation REGNET 30 Understanding e-procurement E-procurement uses Internet & Intranet technologies to automate the process of procuring indirect products and services. Buyers Select approved goods Check prices Check availability Submit requisitions Suppliers Manage content Maintain accuracy Negotiated relationships Buyer specific content Purchaser Approve requisitions Place orders Manage consolidation Analyse purchasing data Sales Accepts order Distribution to buyer Catalogues
July 2002Project presentation REGNET External links are important too Supplier Buyer Catalogue updates, availability information Requests for information, Orders Logistics Instructions to ship Shipping status Bankers Instructions to pay Procurement card transactions Requests for payment Money
July 2002Project presentation REGNET 32 Procurement parts Supplier Part Products are organised through departments, which contain categories. Product Management Search, Delete, Create, Update a product Buyer Part Searching and ordering products Consulting and validating orders Basket Management
