This paper describes a XML-based solution for developing educational hypermedias. This solution is the outcome of the lessons learned in the development of Galatea application, and integrates a hypermedia design methodology (ODH) with a generic technique for the construction of XML-based applications (DTC). Using ODH, designers can describe application's(More)
SUMMARY The design, development and maintenance of large virtual campuses are complex issues. This paper describes the architecture of a large university multiplatform virtual campus. Because we have not found virtual campus architectures described in the literature, the goal of this paper is to make our experience available to a wider audience so that(More)
—The utility of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs)has promoted the successof virtual campuses. This success has increased the number and complexity of virtual campuses worldwide. The Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) is a big university with a fragmented organizational model, and with a heterogeneous acceptance degree of ICTs.The fast(More)
This paper proposes a document oriented paradigm to the development of content-intensive, document-based applications (e.g. educational and hypermedia applications, and knowledge based systems). According to this paradigm, the main aspects of this kind of applications can be described by means of documents. Afterwards, these documents are marked up using(More)
In this paper we promote a document-oriented approach to the development of content-intensive applications (i.e. applications that critically depend on the informational contents and on the characterization of the contents' structure). This approach is the result of our experience as developers in the educational and in the hypermedia domains, as well as in(More)
Latest-generation hypermedia applications represent a new challenge in traditional design and development software engineering techniques. Although there is an impressive array of models to design hypertext applications, these models may not be specially suited for conceptualization-prototyping stages. In this paper, we provide a comprehensive software(More)
ADDS is our proposal for the development of content-intensive applications. Applications in ADDS are produced by processing documents that describe their main aspects and that have been marked up using application-dependent, Domain-Specific Markup Languages (DSMLs). To make ADDS of practical value, we promote the incremental definition of DSMLs, as well as(More)
This paper describes the operationalization process (i.e. the step from application descriptions to executable applications) followed in DTC (structured Documents, document Transformations and software Components), an approach to develop applications using generalized markup technologies. DTC encourages the definition of XML-based domain-specific languages(More)
