Artemis Data Book Directory Structure
The Artemis Data Book has a deeply embedded file
structure which follows
the outline of the book:
/adb/ -- Artemis Data Book root
/adb/01/ -- Section 1.
/adb/01/01/ -- Section 1.1
/adb/01/01/01/ -- Section 1.1.1.
/adb/06/ -- Section 6.
/adb/06/01/ -- Section 6.1
/adb/06/01/01/ -- Section 6.1.1.
/adb/a/ -- Appendix A
/adb/a/01/ -- Appendix A, Section 1.
We set it up this way to keep the files organized, but more
importantly to allow for access control to individual areas of the book.
That allows for the chairman of each technical committee to have write
access to the areas his committee is reponsible for without the risk of
giving full access to everybody. We were more worried blunders than mischief,
but both are real concerns. Of course, the advent of WebSite Director
has overcome a lot of those concerns, but the directory structure has
continued to provide us with a scalable architecture for the Artemis Project
web and the Artemis Data Book.
Some of these directory structures go very deep, up to 7 levels below
All links in the Artemis Data Book reference all the way back to
top the web root at /.
That is, they start with /adb. Images come from the Imagery Library in /images, of course. We coded
everything relative to the web root to allow for mirroring. Future versions
of WebSite Director should allow us to have everything coded with true
relative linking, with links relative to the current document. We haven't
implemented that plan yet, though, because it would be a bear to maintain
