© 2015 ACM. Inspired by the actual trend of empowering traditional Web search methodologies by means of novel computational paradigms, in this paper we propose and experimentally assess WebClustCube, a novel system that allows OLAP-enabled Web search of complex objects, thus adding new value to the potentialities of current Web search paradigms. In particular, WebClustCube supports the building and the interactive manipulation of OLAP-enabled Web views over complex objects extracted from distributed databases. The data management, OLAP-like support of WebClustCube is provided by ClustCube, a state-of-the-art framework for coupling OLAP methodologies and clustering algorithms with the goal of analyzing and mining of complex database objects. A case study that clearly shows the potentialities of WebClustCube in the context of next-generation Web search environments is provided. We complement of analytical contribution by means of an experimental assessment and analysis of WebClustCube according to several metric perspectives.
