Title: NETWORK MANAGEMENT USING BROWSER-BASED TECHNOLOGY
Abstract:
A network management system (100) which enables a user to manage a network using browser available on remote computer systems (170). A designer provides a page specification document (510) identifying information elements of interest and corresponding explanatory labels. The page specification document (510) is translated into a plurality of hypertext documents. The page specification document also allows the designer to logically group (520) the information elements of interest, and the grouping automatically defines the sequence in which the hypertext documents (520) are accessed from other hypertext documents by actuating hypertext links in the other hypertext documents. The user interface is further simplified by providing Java Applets (1030), which provide a simple user interface.
