Conceptual modelling for database user interfaces.

  Model-based user interface development environments show promise for improving the speed of production and quality user interfaces. Such systems usually have seperate descriptions of domain, task and presentation to structure. The Teallach system applies model based techniques to the important area of database interfaces, which increases the importance of domain information. This exists in the form of a schema and can be captured in a high-level format, so that the developer need not build a domain description arbitrarily. This paper describes such a Domain Model, how it is captured and how it contributes to the systematic development of a user interface.
