Abstract

Driven by the philosophy of the “primacy of structure over data”, CB-OHS present an open set of structure servers providing structural abstractions of different hypermedia domains. To address the emerged requirements and to facilitate the development of structure servers, structure should be handled as a first class entity. We propose patterns for structure, called templates, that define the structural model upon which structure servers operate.
