    Model-based systems provide methods for supporting the systematic and efficient
    development of application interfaces. This paper examines how model-based
    technologies can be exploited to develop user interfaces to databases. To this end
    five model-based systems, namely Adept, HUMANOID, Mastermind, TADEUS
    and DRIVE are discussed through the use of a unifying case study which allows
    the examination of the approaches followed by the different systems.
