Abstract

See full text

A Web interface and method for displaying directory information are disclosed. The Web interface for displaying directory information comprises a server for receiving a directory request, a request processor operatively connected to the server, wherein the request processor links directory data to a template file (214) in response to the directory request, wherein the template file (214) dynamically creates a response to the directory request, and a publisher for publishing the response. A method for displaying directory information in accordance with the invention comprises the following steps: receiving at least one information request; retrieving data from a directory responding to the information request; correlating the data with a template file to create a response, the template file comprising tags for controlling display of the data; and publishing the response.
