Abstract/Description

This paper describes a runtime user-interface development
environment (UIDE) for the novel capability of interactively using and specifying user-interfaces to object-oriented databases (IDSs). A framework provides the foundation for IDSs constructed. This concerns interpreting an
IDS, specified in a conceptual object-oriented data language, using a persistent meta model. A generic environment model facilitates dynamic integration of existing user-interface widgets into the meta model. This achieves the goal of
providing a database representation independent visual environment (DRIVE). The architecture and use of DRIVE are described and the benefits of this approach are discussed.
