Contributions to the development of methods and tools for interactive design of applications software
1980 (English)Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
This thesis consists of five research reports dealing with different aspects of the design of interactive application oriented software. A generalized framework for dialogue design is presented and the implementation of customized programming environments, supporting computer utilization for specific applications is discussed. Highlights of our presentation are:
- Uniform treatment of different kinds of end-user dialogues, especially with respect to irregular or unexpected terminal inputs
- Emphasis on programming environments instead of language design, promoting (he view of programming as a specification process performed with a data editor.
- Introduction of an intermediate system level, where a general-purpose programming system is specialized for a given class of applications, through the support of specialized conceptual frameworks and default mechanisms.
- Promotion of control independence in the sense that the specification of program execution particulars, such as end-user interactions etc., is postponed as long as possible and liable to subsequent change without reprogramming.
