Helios is separated into two packages: the backend, called HeliosIndex, is made in Java; the frontend, called Helios, is made in PHP. HeliosIndex: This java program is designed to process a folder (and its subdirectories) with mp3 files, get their relevant data (size, name, title, artist, album) and put it into a mysql database. It is designed to run on regular intervals, like every hour or every day.
Helios: This php frontend gives you the ability to search trough the created database or to browse trough it. It can give detailed information about a file or folder. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
