Abstract
(EN)
A remote database (110) is accessed from user terminals. A communication channel is established over the World Wide Web (101) and commands defining a user interface are returned from the database system to the user terminals. The database system supplies an indication of quantifiable values to the user terminals inviting a user to select one of said values. An indication of a selected value is supplied to the database system resulting in an indication being returned of available data mappings. A data mapping is selected by a user and an indication of a selected mapping is supplied to the database. In response to this indication, an enquiry is made by activating database-specific instructions defined by Standard Query Language.

Système permettant à des terminaux utilisateurs d'accéder à une base de données à distance (110). L'utilisateur établit une liaison de communication par l'intermédiaire du World Wide Web (101) et le système de base de données renvoie les commandes définissant une interface utilisateur au terminal. La base de données fournit des valeurs quantifiables au terminal de l'utilisateur, en invitant ce dernier à sélectionner l'une desdites valeurs. L'utilisateur indique la valeur qu'il sélectionne à la base de données, qui en retour fournit les configurations de données disponibles. L'utilisateur sélectionne une configuration de données et indique celle qu'il a sélectionnée à la base de données. Cette dernière, en réponse à l'indication reçue, procède à une recherche en activant des instructions de type SQL qui lui sont spécifiques.
