Abstract

This chapter introduces a method that integrates navigational and presentational designs to object-oriented conceptual modelling, and also provides systematic code generation. The essential expressiveness is provided using graphical schemas that specify navigation and presentation features, and use high-level abstraction primitives. Using conceptual schemas as input, a methodology is defined to systematically take a problem space to the solution space by defining a set of correspondences between conceptual modelling abstractions and the final software components. We also provide a case study that details the application of the proposed methodology.
