Abstract: Web crawlers are a significant component in Web search engines. This paper describes a distributed, Web-based system consisting of 3 layers: presentation, business logic and data persistence. The educational benefit of this system is in the provision of an interactive reference tool to encourage the evaluation of systems that fulfill certain methodological requirements. The studies collected can be used as a basis of a searchable online database that provides an overview of the state-of-the-art to a scientific community and encourages scientists to evaluate their own systems. The system will also help students identify pitfalls in the planning process as well as in data analysis. The collaborative nature of the tool facilitates the sharing of information among research students. The architecture includes RSS Feed Management, Paper Subscription, SMART URL analysis and Document Downloading. The system has been tested and evaluated showing good performance, the results are presented below.
