Interfaces Able to Adapt to Various Interaction Platforms.
International Journal of Human Computer Studies.
goal of this work is the design of an environment for supporting run time
migration of Web interfaces among different platforms. This allows users
interacting with a Web application to change device and continue their
in-teraction from the same point. The migration takes into account the
runtime state of the interactive application and the different features
of the devices in-volved. We consider Web interfaces developed through
a multiple-level ap-proach using: the definition of the tasks to support,
the abstract description of the user interface, and the actual code. The
runtime migration engine exploits information regarding the application
runtime state and higher-level informa-tion on the available target platforms.
Runtime application data are used to achieve interaction continuity and
preserve usability, while information on the different platforms is considered
to adapt the application’s appearance and be-haviour to the specific
device. The paper also discusses a sample application in order to provide
concrete examples of the results that can be achieved through our approach.
