ABSTRACT

ASSET_A_192:  User Interface Management Systems Comparison Report
     This report examines three user interface management systems (UIMS)
for their suitability as a UIMS for the STARS Software Engineering
Environment.  There are many different definitions of the UIMS, but the
core of the definition that a UIMS should separate the management of the
user interface, both the representation and dialogue aspects, from the
application semantics.  Most UIMS include some type of graphical layout
capability, usually either an editor or layout language. Dialogue
languages for handling user interaction is an area of active research.
     The three UIMSs chosen for evaluation were Serpent, developed by
Software Engineering Institute (SEI), Chiron-1, under development in the
Arcadia project, and TeleUse, a product marketed by TeleLogic (U.S.
Subsidiary of TeleSoft). The three UIMSs chosen for this study represent
the range of  sources for UIMS technology
