Devising a New Model-Driven Framework for Developing GUI for Enterprise Applications

  • 1493 Accesses

Abstract

The main goal of this chapter is to demonstrate the design and development of a GUI framework that is model driven and is not directly linked to one presentation technology or any specific presentation subsystem of a certain programming language. This framework will allow us to create graphical user interfaces that are not only dynamically customizable but also multilingual. In order to demonstrate this new concept we design in this chapter a new framework called Customizable Enterprise Data Administrator (CEDAR). Additionally, we build a prototype of this framework and a technology-dependent engine which would transform the output of our framework into a known presentation technology.
