Project HyperAdapt
Well-formed and controlled multi-level aspect-oriented adaptation of hypermedia applications

Detailed information



The first demo of HyperAdapt is now available online. Test the adaptivity capabilities of our SoundNexus prototype and give us feedback!
Update: Due to the unclear legal situation, we had to remove a great share of album content from the page.


HyperAdapt presents more research results on this year's ICOMP conference in Las Vegas, USA.


The project website has been revised to a big extent and now contains current information on HyperAdapt. Additionally, this English version has been launched.


We now have a poster of HyperAdapt which briefly explains the project on one single page. This poster has originally been designed for the ICWE 2009 conference and is now available for download here.

Poster Hyperadapt
03/2009 HyperAdapt was able to place its first publications! On this year's ICWE 2009, both a full paper and a poster paper dealing with issues of HyperAdapt have been accepted. ICWE 2009

Vision and Goal

As a DFG project, Hyperadapt investigates well-formed and controlled multi-staged aspect-oriented adaption in the context of hypermedia web applications. The project ist carried out by the two chairs of multimedia technology (Heinz-Nixdorf-Chair of Multimedia Technology) and software engineering (Lehrstuhl Softwaretechnologie) at the Computer Science Faculty of TU Dresden. Hyperadapt is planned to start in October 2008 and to end in September 2010. The project builds up on experiences gathered in the projects AMACONT and Reuseware.

AMACONT is a framework for the development of context-adaptive hypermedia applications. It uses an XML-based component model to manage structured documents. The components are divided into three layers, ranging from simple media components like text assets or images to larger, reusable document components. To generate web pages from documents, AMACONT uses a pipeline-based approach for the transformation of XML documents, taking well-formed AMACONT documents as input and producing XHTML pages as output (still, other output formats are also possible). To consider context information, AMACONT's transformation pipeline supports context adaptation. Context in hypermedia applications (or web applications) often considers the devices on which webapplications are used (e.g., PDA vs. PC) and user-specific preferences and properties. For AMACONT, application developers can specify different variants of parts of their application, each fitting to a specific context.
