Platform independent description of modern user interface controls


With regard to the ongoing development of modern desktop user interfaces the number of concepts and ways for creating reliable user interface elements is still growing. While interface elements of current operating systems should behave equally, the effort regarding the development of platform independent user interfaces can grow enormously. One new approach is the descriptive declaration of UI-controls, as can be seen with XAML in the upcoming Microsoft Windows Presentation Foundation. The Comarch OCEAN GenRap project, which is distributed to the .NET and Java platform, commonly available controls (e.g. from the swing library), should also match the high demands of complex applications. Therefore the implementation of custom-made controls became necessary, where the control logic is written in Java and used by both distribution ways. Thereby wrappers which abstract from the graphics system of each platform try to minimize the implementation effort. This project background forms the basis for this work, which will be done in the field of declarative languages for user interfaces and platform independent UI-logics connected to them. The following detailed results are expected from this thesis:
