SUMMARY
Publishing is a distributed process which is characterized by the cooperation of different ex-
perts. The approach of the Integrated Publication and Information Systems Institute (IPSI)
to support electronic publishing is to build an integrated publication environment. The publi-
cation of electronic documents demands enhanced support from publishing tools and imposes
new challenges on database technology. Taking a hypermedia reference publication as an ex-
ample, requirements on database technology for the production of electronic publications are
discussed. Those can be met by using an object-oriented database management system like
VODAK. We present an efficient, flexible and application-independent database application
for structured document handling (D-STREAT). Our focus is on dynamic Document Type
Definition management.
KEY WORDS SGML Object-oriented database systems Structured document storage
