Flexibility and Automation in Building and Maintaining Infobases
Flexible, Automated Project Management.
Folio Builder oversees the conversion of gigabytes of source files into Folio Infobase format, giving you complete control over the build process from
the first steps of data conversion through the final steps of indexing and compressing.
Because the process of building indexed content varies from firm to firm,
Folio provides tools with both flexibility and automated control in mind.
Once configured, the steps required to create a final product involving
conversion, mark-up, validation, and indexing of your content can be saved
and re-executed with a single command.
Robust filters convert popular file formats directly to Folio infobase
format. Each filter preserves text mark-up; including tables from
the original files.
To provide confidence in your finished product, Folio Builder includes
a utility that checks infobase syntax, verifies links, and generates
a report about the contents of the infobase, including how styles
Folio Builder provides both URL and HTML file filters to convert
documents, World Wide Web sites, or collections of sites into Folio
infobase format, while preserving all the relative links within
the site. Web site or HTML filters can be combined with other file
filters to create a single source information collection. You can
also create Web links in your information base that link to URLS
on the World Wide Web.
Security and Commerce-Enabling Features
Folio Builder lets information owners control who can access information
owners control who can access information, what they can do with it, and
how long they can use it. Folio Builder can generate passwords that unlock
secure or expired data. Publishers can sue these features for information
commerce, selling session-specific passwords to infobases, or infobase
Record Level Security
Information can be secured to any level of granularity within an
infobase. Thus information can be distributed to multiple users
while preserving control over who can and cannot access various
document subsections. Encryption secures off-limits information
against unauthorized use.
When tracking usage is important, meters built by a third-party developer can
allow information publishers to gauge relative popularity of document
subsections or to bill users for information access.
Distribution of Content
Single File for Easy Distribution.
Indexed rich text complete with hypertext mark-up, graphics, tables and
other object types are all stored in a single files, of up to two
gigabytes. Thus infobases created with Folio Builder are self-contained
and easy to distribute or install for your users.
To maximize storage capacity, Folio Builder compresses information,
in many instances down to 60 percent of the original source data
size-including the full text index. This lets you build large infobases
without taking up vast space on your server, notebook computer,
or popular media.
Custom Search Forms.
To accommodate the specialized needs associated with professional information,
and to help publishers distinguish the functionality bundled with
their packages from those of their competition, Folio Builder lets
the builder create custom query dialogs for endusers. Custom search
dialogs can be based on either the Boolean or Ranked query engines;
or combine to a single dialog that uses both engines.

Dealing with today's flood of information and providing access to it for
