The HTTP-NG Project, Phase I
Started June 1997 - Phase I almost done
The Project has two Purposes
Gather information about the Web
What are people doing, would like to do, likely to do, etc.
Use this information to see what happens when expressing HTTP using a Distributed Object Architecture
Modularization, layering, formalism
Why are we doing this?
Design goal: Reliable extensibility, simplicity, efficiency
Local as well as global extensibility
