Hyperlinks, Software Architecture, Architectural Styles
According to a Web usability study  by the Georgia
Institute of Technology, net users rate broken hyperlinks as
the second-biggest problem online, right behind slow
loading pages. The problem of broken hyperlinks (or dead
links) is a common problem within enterprise websites
comprising hundreds or thousands of interconnected web
pages that are continuously modified and updated .
Broken links can occur due to many reasons such as file
rename, delete or path modification, which are likely events
within enterprises. Many commercial tools were developed
to deal with this problem . In this paper, we present
a novel architecture for linking web pages following the
NaSr style  that provides a potential solution for the
broken hyperlink problem.
