Broadway*Tools is a toolbox supporting the creation of adaptive recommendation systems on the Web or in a Internet/Intranet information system. The toolbox offers different servers, including a server that computes recommendations based on the observation of the user sessions and on the re-use of user groups' former sessions. A recommender system created with Broadway*tools observes navigations of various users and gather the evaluations and annotations of those users to draw up a list of relevant recommendations (Web documents, keywords, etc).
Different recommender systems have been developed from Jaczybski'thesis for supporting Web browsing, for supporting browsing inside a Web-based information system or for supporting query formulation in the context of a meta search engine.
