Visualization and graphical layout in object-oriented systems

This report describes a new approach to visualizing program systems within the objectoriented paradigm. This approach is based on a TEX-like notation which has been extended and generalized for specifying graphical layout of arbitrary objects. Our simplest scheme offers specifications similar to TEX’s box-and-glue metaphor. Size and position of boxes and glue can be specified by constraints. The CLOS meta-level architecture is used to associate visualization and application objects. We propose… CONTINUE READING
