Model-based software engineering for interactive systems

  • Christian Märtin
Part of the Advances in Computing Science book series (ACS)


Software solutions for many target domains (e.g. business, financial, CAD, scientific visualization, Internet) are typically organized as interactive systems. This article discusses the design of interactive software systems in general and presents a model-based environment for computer-aided design of such systems, the Application Modeling Environment (AME).
