This project has looked at novel retrieval methods for a variety of legal documents using the DAP parallel processor. The system has three main components: the document selector: this may be either the DAPText index server or any other suitable retrieval engine. DAPText is a database indexing engine from Cambridge Parallel Processing which runs on the DAP 610C, a massively parallel Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) processor, the object server or document retriever that returns the fall text of selected documents, the graphical user interface (GUI) that manages the interactions. For example, it translates the user queries into a form appropriate for the retrieval engine being used and converts the retrieved documents from the database storage format into Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) for the Web.
