Instead of using XML files to store metadata
information, the software could give a possibility to
store the data in a database like postgresql or mysql.
So this kind of information could be shared with other
people easily.
Id like to develop a web interface to access this kind
of data but I feel more comfortable to work with
databases managers.
congratulations.

    The tool uses a file based repository to facilitate the interoperability across different plattforms (Windows, Linux, Mac, ...).
    The use of a RDBMS would make the installation and running more difficult.
    Additionally, the main aim of the tool is for the creation of metadata and management of described resources in a desktop environment.
    For the development of search catalog systems, metadata can be exported and uploaded in the repositories of any Web-enabled catalogs.
