Ooooh, I like it. Wonder what this sort of thing could do with bibliographic data?


Wonder what it would look like working over multiple databases? (like a metasearch)

Glad you like it.

it's designed to work over multiple heterogeneous, distributed resources.

the next release will feature this facility.

if you'd like a preview, there's a paper about the architecture to support this at
