Archiving of Dynamic Web Content
Digital documents get more and more important as they exceed conventional documents in variety even today. Whereas classical long-term preservation procedures are successfully applied to classical documents since a few years, the development of preservation procedures for electronic documents is at a rather early stage.
The aim of this thesis is to analyse current technologies, which enable to store Web sites and digital documents permanently in a database. The focus is on algorithms, which utilize the technique of incremental storage. This method (delty-copy) records only the changes of the content and it avoids duplicates. A further goal of these procedures is to retrace the evolution of Web sites through the time.
