TRIDENT is a set of interactive tools that automatically generates a user interface for highly-interactive business-oriented applications. It includes an intelligent interaction objects selection based on three different concepts. First, on object oriented typology classifies abstract interaction objects to allow a presentation independent selection.(More)
This paper presents a complete model-based approach to the building of presentation for a business oriented highly interactive application. This approach is considered complete in the sense that it supports a continuum from task analysis to a first prototype without disruption. The main steps involved in the proposed methodology include a task analysis(More)
When designers are facing the question how to build an application architecture practically, they often have to consider various arguments and factors coming from different perspectives: decomposition criteria in architecture design, dialog independence in user interface (UI) design, methodology to follow in a development team. These factors are not easy to(More)
Traditional system development methodologies have many shortcomings for highly interactive business applications; development phases can be poorly integrated and lack continuity; design is not grounded in task analysis. This paper presents five key activities that span several life cycle phases to address existing shortcomings. The activities form the(More)
This study is devoted to the layout problem in the TRIDENT project (Tools foR an Interactive Development ENvironmenT), which is dedicated to highly interactive business-oriented applications. In this project, the placement problem consists of a computer-aided visual placement of interaction objects (IO) included in a more composite IO called Presentation(More)
It is now widely recognized that powerful architecture elements are needed for implementing highly-interactive business-oriented applications during at least two stages of the whole lifecycle, namely the specification and the design. In this paper, we deal with the architecture model of the TRIDENT project, which introduces three components : the semantic(More)
