This paper addresses conceptual modeling and automaticcode generation for Rich Internet Applications, a variant ofWeb-based systems bridging desktop and thin-client Webinterfaces. We show how classical Web modeling conceptsare not enough to capture the specificity of RIAs, extend anexisting Web modeling language, and provide an implementationof a CASE tool(More)
The widespreading of XML as a standard for semi-structured documents on the WEB opens up challenging opportunities for WEB query languages. In this paper we introduce XML-GL, a graphical query language for XML documents. The use of a visual formalism for representing both the content of XML documents (and of their DTDs) and the syntax and semantics of(More)
Significant effort is currently invested in application integration, enabling business processes of different companies to interact and form complex multiparty processes. Web service standards, based on WSDL (Web Service Definition Language), have been adopted as process-to-process communication paradigms. However, the conceptual modeling of applications(More)
The rapid evolution of XML from a mere data exchange format to a universal syntax for encoding domain-specific information raises the need for new query languages specifically conceived to address the characteristics of XML. Such languages should be able not only to extract information from XML documents, but also to apply powerful transformation and(More)
owadays, Rich Internet Applications are gaining ground thanks to the facilities they provide to develop Web applications with multimedia, high levels of inte-ractivity, collaborative work, and/or homogeneous presentation requirements at the client side. However, this new kind of Web applications currently lacks complete methodologies and models which aid(More)
This work addresses conceptual modeling and automatic code generation for Rich Internet Applications, a variant of Web-based systems bridging the gap between desktop and Web interfaces. The approach we propose is a first step towards a full integration of RIA paradigms into the Web development process, enabling the specification of complex Web solutions(More)
Rich Internet applications (RIAs) enable novel usage scenarios by overcoming the traditional paradigms of Web interaction. Conventional Web applications can be seen as reactive systems in which events are 1) produced by the user acting upon the browser HTML interface, and 2) processed by the server hosting the application state and logic. In RIAs,(More)
In this paper we describe the advanced features of XML-GL, a graphical query language over XML data which enables the retrieval and restructuring of XML documents in a simple and intuitive way. After a summary of the basic features on the language, we focus on complex queries, whose expressive power subsumes some well-known relational operations (e.g.(More)
