Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9946665A1] Methods and apparatus for enabling a client to publish documents on a secure information server without directly accessing the information server are disclosed. According to one aspect of the present invention, a method for publishing data created by a user onto a server machine includes sending the data from the user to a database that is communicably coupled to both the user and the server machine and storing the data on the database. The database sends an identifier that identifies the storage location of the data on the database to the user, and the user sends the identifier, and not the data, in a publish command to the server machine. The publish command is arranged to cause the server machine to access the data stored on the database. In response to the publish command, the server machine retrieves the data from the database. In one embodiment, the server machine includes a destination server and an output server.
