HotDico Project.

DICO is a tool to consult multiple dictionaries or structured data on
a computer network developed at ISSCO (University of Geneva). It is
designed to accommodate various dictionary representations. In
addition to a set of basic searching mechanisms, it allows easy
addition of custom indexes.

simplicity: tool that enables non-specialist users to lookup
entries in dictionaries.
accessibility: it should work in an environment of networked
heterogeneous computers.
expandability: it should be easy to add data, indexes.
robustness: it should be resistant to hazards inherent to
networks and inexperienced users

A WEB demo version of this tool is now available, with a Java User
