I recently inherited ownership of a series of documents that are created
in ISPF-TSO (IBM legacy system). I want to migrate
this process to our intranet where all the various types of clients who
need these docs can do the following:

1) Some clients only need read-only access to the archives.

2) Other clients* need read/write access to fill out an online template
to produce new documents (for
the clients listed in #1). (They* are the ones who are currently
producing the TSO docs)

My challenge:

1) Choose a database which has the following functions:

* templates for building new documents
* submission process for adding new documents to the
database
* revision process for updating existing database documents
* archive access (read only) for all clients

2) Migrate the existing archive of TSO-created documents to the Web and
convert to
whatever type of document the new templates use.

I am assuming I would want to build a database. If my assumption is
incorrect, please let me know. My current process is
unwieldy and time-consuming:...I individually migrate the new TSO docs
to the web where I massage them with AOLPRESS
(for formatting) and create individual HTML files. When the TSO docs
are revised, I have to migrate them over the same way
(eg. format them and convert to html).

I appreciate any advice you can offer....
