Designations used by companies to distinguish their products are often claimed as trademarks or registered trademarks. In all instances in which Morgan Kaufmann Publishers is aware of a claim, the product names appear in initial capital or all capital letters. Readers, however, should contact the appropriate companies for more complete information regarding(More)
Several methodologies and tools have been proposed for Web applications design and development. However, traditional Web applications are still inadequate to support the interaction and presentation functionalities demanded by the users. Recently, rich Internet applications (RIAs) have been proposed as an answer to these problems providing new levels of(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)
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 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)
Nowadays, Rich Internet Applications are gaining ground thanks to the facilities they provide to develop Web applications with multimedia, high levels of interactivity, 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)
As the Web becomes a platform for implementing B2B applications, the need arises of Web conceptual models for describing Web oriented workflow applications implementing business processes. In this context, new problems about process correctness arise, due to the loose control of Web applications upon the behavior of their Web clients. Indeed, incoherent(More)
Current model-driven Web Engineering approaches (such as OO-H, UWE or WebML) provide a set of methods and supporting tools for a systematic design and development of Web applications. Each method addresses different concerns using separate models (content, navigation, presentation, business logic, etc.), and provide model compilers that produce most of the(More)
