Matthew L. Aronoff, John V. Messina, Kevin G. Brady
This paper describes Hydra, a graphical software tool designed for use on the Web, that is intended to simplify the building, editing, and searching of large and complex information hierarchies. Specifically, the initial development focuses on facilitating the development of XML based standards used in supporting business-to-business e-commerce transactions within the electronics industry. Hydra uses novel 3-dimensional methods for displaying and manipulating such structures in a graphical format that simplifies their representation, navigation and understanding by a user.
