The Construct development environment is targeted at the construction of different types of hypermedia services. The primary goal of the environment is to ease the construction of component-based open hypermedia systems by providing development tools that assist system developers in the generation of the set of service components that make up a hypermedia system. This paper explains how the Construct development environment was used to generate a file-based hypermedia storage service.
