In this chapter, an architecture for form-based application generation is presented. The architecture is named FORMAG, and features the use of NTs as cononical representations of objects including databases, interactive screens, and output reports. Since database manipulation, screen-based interactive sessions, and report generation are major components of most conventional application systems, FORMAG can provide a sound basis for their modeling and generation.
