USING CONTENT SYNDICATION TECHNOLOGIES IN DISTRIBUTING AND PUBLISHING INFORMATION TO REACH ALL USERS

Serena Pastore

Abstract

Content syndication is a widely used method to distribute information as web feeds. It is an easy way of reaching the greatest number of end users requiring immediate access. Content syndication is essentially based on XML technology, is easily distributed and possesses a high level of interoperability across platforms. Both the website providing information with an up-to-date structure regardless of the different techniques to stored and manage content and the website consuming information benefit from such technology. Several different specifications and standards have been developed to support syndication, all used in every context. The paper describes how syndication technology has been used to distribute centrally located INAF information to each organizational entity’s local Web site. It describes technological choices done both for producing and distributing the feed to each local website presenting it as a specific section of the home page. Feeds are produced according to different formats, and technologies and standards used are specific Web technologies collectively known as Web 2.0 applications.
