Abstract

Due to the steadily growing interest in Austrian Literature, we had initiated an Open Distance Learning (ODL) course. For this purpose, we build a framework that allows to record the data required for publication in a highly generic form. The aim was to separate data from presentation, to prevent information loss and to gain flexibility for future use of the data in other (scientific) projects. We decided to store data in a database using a GUI for easy access. The database is then transformed into XML using Java and DOM/SAX libraries for flexible generation of different presentation formats like HTML and PDF. This guarantees usability in other contexts. With this approach, we anticipate the possible direct use of XML using XSL in the future.
