Tool Support for a Hybrid Development Methodology of Service-Based Interactive Applications
In recent years promising approaches that provide the graphical development of service-based interactive applications were presented, but they still lack of simple platform-independent modeling and variability. We address this issue by exploiting the concept of service annotations to establish a hybrid development methodology that relies on a novel concept named temporal annotations to specify the applications navigation flow. To facilitate the development methodology, we present a graphical authoring tool.
