A Tour of the APIB Gateway


The best way to show how the APIB gateway works is through sample user sessions involving two of the services supported by the CGI scripts in Figure 1: an APIB browser and an IR Query interface. The browser provides a way for the user to view STEP documents using context-sensitive hypertext links. IR Query permits the user to search for certain object specifications in the IRs by specifying a name substring.
