About WEB-Observer Demo Access News FAQ Contact


The system is built on web technologies. This allows using it remotely from any computer connected to the Internet. The core of the system is written in Java language, while user interface was written in PHP. Any database supporting ANSI SQL standard can be used as the system's database.

The system automatically scans the sources connected to the core, detects new publications and extracts them. Then the system parses the documents, according to their format and forms index tables, generating word-document relations. The software core architecture, data traveling around software modules, as well as the links between modules and their functions are shown on the picture below:
