  • This application claims the benefit of prior filed U.S. nonprovisional application Ser. No. 11/290,230 filed Nov. 30, 2005, which claims the benefit of provisional application Ser. No. 60/667,105, filed Mar. 31, 2005, both of which are incorporated herein by reference in their entirety.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Field of the Invention
  • The present invention relates to document management systems and methods. More specifically, the invention relates to systems and methods for automatically associating a document to a document series.
  • 2. Description of the related art
  • The usefulness of document management systems are known and are widely used in large organizations or departments. A user can quickly retrieve a document from these systems while being assured that the documents stored in these systems are properly backed up. Locating and retrieving documents depends on the metadata associated with each document. The ease of locating or publishing a document increases as more metadata about the document is associated with the document. The user, however, usually enters Metadata, and if the amount of metadata required becomes burdensome to the user, the user may not enter the required data. Therefore, there remains a need for systems and methods that encourage a user to enter metadata for each document and preferably to automatically store, maintain, and attach metadata to a document.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • A system and method that allows a publisher to create a document series, associate a document with a document series and present to an end-user a series nugget displaying at least one document associated with the document series. Document series information may be inherited by each document in the document series. Document series information is stored in an asset database.
  • One embodiment of the present invention is directed to a computer implemented method comprising the steps of: creating a document series nugget, the document series nugget placed on a web page presented to an end-user; creating a document series, the document series presented in the document series nugget; and associating a document to the document series, the document series presenting the document in a list of documents in the document series.
  • Another embodiment of the present invention is directed to a system for managing a document series via a user interface, the document series having a document associated with the document series, the system comprising; a first database storing metadata characterizing the document series, the metadata accessed by a key; a second database storing the key; a first component configured to retrieve the document series metadata from the first database through the key stored on the second database and passing the retrieved metadata to the user interface; and a second component configured to receive document metadata from a user through the user interface, the document metadata including an association with the document series.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • The description herein should be understood to describe only one preferred embodiment of the invention. Those skilled in the art will recognize, for example, that the described embodiment is just one simplified example of the novel system and method of document series management. The simplified example is all that needs to be described in detail in order to enable the more general system and method that the invention comprises.
  • FIG. 1 is a deployment diagram for an embodiment of the present invention. In FIG. 1, a presentation tier 120 includes software components that interface with a publisher. As used herein, a publisher refers to a person who publishes a document to a web page for viewing by end-users on a network. A publisher may be the creator of the document or may be one of a group of editors that update the document. In a preferred embodiment, a publisher may create, edit, and delete a document. The publisher publishes a document by placing the document in a shared folder that may be placed on a web page that is available to the end-users of the network.
  • In a preferred embodiment, the publisher interacts with the presentation tier 120 through a user interface such as, for example, a web browser 105. The presentation tier 120 populates a web page presented to the publisher's browser with information provided from a business tier 140, retrieves information entered by the publisher, and passes the entered information to the business tier 140. An integration tier 160 receives information requests from the business layer 140 and queries and retrieves information from a resource tier 180.
  • The resource tier 180 may include one or more database systems that store portions of the information displayed on the end-user's browser. In the embodiment shown in FIG. 1, the resource tier 180 includes a user collection framework (UCF) database 196 that stores the group/individual access lists for each document series. The UCF database may be a lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP). An UCF application program interface (API) 197 provides an interface between the UCF LDAP and an UCF JAR component in the integration tier 166. The UCF JAR component is preferably a JAVA component that receives information requests from the business layer 140, formulates a query request to the LDAP database, transmits the query request to the LDAP API 197, retrieves information from the LDAP API, and passes the information to the business layer 140.
  • Similarly, document series metadata may be stored in an asset database (aDb) 191 in the resource tier 180. An example of an aDb is described in co-pending application Ser. No. 11/025,871 filed Dec. 29, 2004 entitled, “System and Method for Corporate-wide Policy Management,” which is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety. An aDb API 192 provides an interface to query the aDb 191. An aDb JAR component 164 builds a query request based on information provided by a document series data access component 162, sends the query request to the aDb API 192, retrieves information from the aDb API 192, and forwards the retrieved information to the document series data access component 162.
  • A web content management (WCM) database 185 stores document series and folder keys that are used to retrieve the metadata from aDb and is accessed through a document series data access component 162 in the integration tier 160.
  • The business tier 140 includes one or more software components that manage the metadata for each document and provide document metadata to the presentation tier 120. When a publisher creates a document series and saves the series, a document series save component 145 is invoked to save the document series information. The series save component 145 invokes a document series utility component 144 that saves the group information associated with the saved document series. The series save component 145 also invokes the series data access component 162 in the integration tier 160 to save the document series metadata as an asset in the aDb 191. A key for the new document series is returned from aDb 191 and is stored in the WCM database 185.
  • The presentation tier 120 includes one or more software components that populate the publisher's browser page with the relevant document metadata. A series nugget component 121 retrieves document series information based on the publisher and displays the document series associated with a folder on the document series edit screen.
  • A document series component 122 retrieves metadata for a document series selected by the publisher and displays the series metadata on the document series edit screen. The document series component 122 invokes a document helper component 141 and a folder information details component 142 in the business tier 140 to retrieve the document series and folder metadata for the selected document series and displays the retrieved metadata on the document series edit screen. The document helper component 142 invokes a document series information component 143 that retrieves the document series information from the integration tier 160.
  • A document series status component 123, a document series confirm component 124, and a document series error component 125 provide information to the publisher regarding the status of an operation invoked by the user. For example, when a publisher saves a newly created document series, the document series status component 123 may be invoked to display a message giving the status of the save operation. If the save operation is successful, the document series confirm component 124 is invoked to display a message to the publisher confirming that the save operation completely successfully. If the save operation is unsuccessful, the document series error component 125 is invoked to display a message to the publisher indicating that an error occurred during the save operation.
  • FIG. 2 is a portion of a view presented to an end-user in an embodiment of the present invention. FIG. 2 displays four document series nuggets and is preferably part of a web page that the end-user may view from his/her web browser. As used herein, a nugget refers to a portion of a displayed web page where information is formatted and presented to the viewer. In a preferred embodiment, a nugget may be created using formatting templates and associating a list of items that is displayed in the nugget to the nugget. The list may be a result of a search or database query that is executed prior to the display of the nugget. Co-pending application Ser. No. 10/903,373 filed Jul. 30, 2004 entitled “System and Method for Data Collection and Processing,” incorporated herein by reference in its entirety, describes an application and method that may be used by a publisher to create a nugget and place it on a web page. Each document series nugget 210 displays a series nugget title 215 and a list of documents 220 belonging to that document series. The list of documents 220 lists one or more of the documents associated with the document series. For each document in the document list 220, a document title, publication date of the document, and an icon 222 indicating the document's file type is presented in the list. An end-user may view a document by selecting the document.
  • An expand icon 224 or a contract icon 226 may be displayed by each document in the document list that presents, when the expand icon is selected, or hides, when the contract icon is selected, a list of operations 230 that may be performed on the document. In the expanded state, the document's filename and author are displayed. The end-user may view the document by, for example, clicking on the document's filename. The end-user may select the author to send the author an email or instant message to the author. In alternative embodiments, clicking on the author hyperlink may cause the end-user's display to display the author's web page or invoke a people finder applet that displays information about the author. An example of a people finder applet is described in co-pending application Ser. No. 11/025,871 filed Dec. 29, 2004 entitled, “System and Method for Corporate-wide Policy Management.”
  • The expanded state may include one or more icons or hyperlinks that, when selected, performs an operation on the document. For example, a document details hyperlink may execute a script that displays the document details in a popup window. In another example, a show all documents hyperlink may execute a script that causes the end-user's web page to show a list of all documents associated with the document series. In another example, an email icon, when selected, displays an email window where the end-user can email a link to the document to another person. In another example, a document series details hyperlink may execute a script that displays the details of the document series associated with the document. In another example, a delete hyperlink may execute a script that deletes the document. Other operations associated with the document may be presented to the end-user in the expanded state.
  • In a preferred embodiment, each document series nugget 210 shown in FIG. 2 may have a different publisher and the documents each document series may stored in different folders independently of the other folders. In such a situation, each publisher may maintain control over their documents while providing a common web page where end-users may view the documents.
  • FIG. 3 is a portion of a web page presented to a publisher in an embodiment of the present invention. The web page shown in FIG. 3 allows the publisher to manage the documents in one or more document series and to manage folders. A drop-down box 310 indicates a selected folder containing documents that may be associated with a document series. A new folder icon 312, a share/edit folder icon 314, and a delete folder icon 316 may be displayed thereby allowing the publisher to create a new folder, edit the properties of a folder, or delete a folder, respectively. When a new folder is created or edited, an administrator can define a group or an individual as having different levels of permissions to access or edit the folder. The permissions defined for each folder preferably apply to all documents contained in, or associated with, the folder. In some embodiments, for example, an administrator is allowed to edit and upload all documents in the folder and can manage permissions for that folder. An editor may edit and upload all documents in the folder but cannot manage the permissions for that folder. A viewer, or end-user, may view documents stored in the folder but may not edit any documents or manage permissions for that folder. Individuals or groups may be selected using a people finder editor as described in co-pending application Ser. No. 11/025,871 filed Dec. 29, 2004 entitled, “System and Method for Corporate-wide Policy Management.” In some embodiments, a viewer default group includes all employees of a company. Once the administrator has defined the permissions for the folder, the groups allowed administrator, editor, or viewer permission for that folder are stored in the UCF LDAP.
  • A shared documents nugget 330 displays a list of previously uploaded documents that the publisher is permitted to edit. The publisher may upload a selected document to a document management system and/or associate the selected document with an existing or newly created document series. A document series list nugget 360 displays a list of existing document series 363 that the publisher may associate documents. A create new icon 365 allows the publisher to create a new document series.
  • FIG. 3 shows a shared document nugget 330 containing one document. The document in FIG. 3 is shown in an expanded view that is similar to the expanded document view presented to the end-user, as shown in FIG. 2, but with the addition of functions to display the document details, to display the document series details, and to delete the document. The publisher may upload the selected document by selecting an upload icon 335.
