MODELING USER INTERFACES WITH THE XIS UML PROFILE

Carlos Martins, Alberto Rodrigues da Silva

Abstract

This paper discusses different User Interface design approaches. We describe how to design user interfaces, based on a MDD approach, by applying the XIS language. XIS is a coherent UML profile focused on model interactive systems. XIS integrates best practices and principles of the MDA/MDD paradigm to improve the User Interface design, such as separation of concerns, model-to-model and model-to-code transformations. In that way, we discuss some issues regarding the transformation processes, from XIS-based models into software systems artifacts.
