Report on Industrial Attachment with Hewlett Packard Labs, Bristol, England Ivan Low Swee Tieng Publishing Systems Solutions Laboratory HP laboratories Bristol HPL-2000-68 7th June, 2000* Baskerville project, E-services, E-speak, XML user interface The Hewlett-Packard Lab's goal of engaging in world-class research in the interrelated technologies has resulted in a need to invent new solutions to address the challenges of a web economy - from secure e-commerce, high availability systems to electronic content publishing. The Baskerville Project, a commercial Printing e-Services project done by the Publishing Systems and Solutions Unit in Hewlett-Packard Laboratory, Bristol, sets to create and develop an infrastructure to enable desktop access to commercial printing capabilities. The students' project, which contributed to part of the Baskerville Project, requires the students to produce components of a workflow concerning outsourced printing. The two main components will involve web front ends to a prototype printing service under development at HP labs. The technical competencies that will be learned by the students include Object Oriented and Java skills, and Internet and e-service technologies.
