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)
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)
This demo presents an extension of a declarative language for specifying data-intensive Web applications. We demonstrate a scenario extracted from a real-life application, the Web portal of a computer manufacturer, including interactions with third-party service providers and enabling distributors to participate in well-defined business processes. The(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)
Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) have introduced powerful novel functionalities into the Web architecture, borrowed from client-server and desktop applications. The resulting platforms allow designers to improve the user's experience, by exploiting client-side data and computation, bidirectional client-server communication, synchronous and asynchronous(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)
