GENERIC STRATEGIES FOR MANIPULATING GRAPHICAL INTERACTION OBJECTS: AUGMENTING, EXPANDING AND INTEGRATING COMPONENTS

Abstract

This paper presents the notion of (user interface development) platform administration and argues for its increasing importance in the context of modern interactive applications. Platform administration entails strategies for manipulating diverse interaction components. Four such strategies are elaborated – namely augmentation, expansion, integration and abstraction – which collectively constitute the ingredients of a platform administration process. The paper describes both the rationale for these strategies in the context of user interface development and their implementation details, as currently realized in an ongoing R&D project.
