Abstract

The Java2 Micro Edition platform can really be considered an emerging standard for new generation embedded software. This article introduces a practical methodology aimed to automatically generate a software prototype starting from an abstract description which defines the dialogue between the user and the application by means of a device independent and abstract description. We will show how an agenda application for cellular phones can be described by means of a visual language called PLANES and present how the personal agenda prototype is implemented by an appropriate generation tool.
