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)
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)
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)
Various forms of guidelines for user-interface design abound in the current literature, but suffer of many drawbacks (dissemination, incompleteness, lack of qualification , lack of unifonnization, desuetude, difficulty to use). As an attempt to palliate these inconveniences, an unified view of guidelines is introduced in a corpus ergonomics, a polyvalent(More)
Multi-windowing capabilities of modern graphical workstations and personal computers provide fundamental features which are necessary to achieve a usable user interface (UI). This usability depends heavily on judicious application of these capabilities. Modifiable variables include reliance on task analysis, respect of guidelines, respect of ergonomic(More)
The aim of this work is to explore and illustrate how techniques for visual communication can serve for laying out interaction and interactive objects in multimedia applications. These techniques have been extracted from visual literacy in order to be adapted to the area of multimedia applications. These applications are generally known and designed for(More)
