Macfarlane A, McCann JA, Robertson SE, 1999, PLIERS: A parallel information retrieval system using MPI, Pages: 317-324, ISSN: 0302-9743
© Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 1999. The use of MPI in implementing algorithms for Parallel Information Retrieval Systems is outlined. We include descriptions on methods for Indexing, Search and Update of Inverted Indexes as well as a method for Information Filtering. In Indexing we describe both local build and distributed build methods. Our description of Document Search includes that for Term Weighting, Boolean, Proximity and Passage Retrieval Operations. Document Update issues are centred on how partitioning methods are supported. We describe the implementation of term selection algorithms for Information Filtering and finally work in progress is outlined.

McCann J, Crane S, 1998, Component DBMS Architecture for Nomadic Computing, 16th British National Conference on Database BNCOD 16 Cardiff, Wales, July 6û8, 1998, Publisher: Springer-Verlag, Pages: 175-176
Current database management system technology is unable to provide adequate support for Nomadic Computing. Mobile applications require systems which are sufficiently lightweight and customisable to provide high performance while consuming minimal power, yet extensible enough to adapt to a constantly changing environment. Current DBMS architectures do not provide this level of customization or adaptability. In this paper we introduce Component-Based Database Management Systems (CBDMS) and discuss their suitability for mobile computing.
