Ontology Interface Model User Interface Development
Institute of Information Theories and Applications FOI ITHEA
The paper describes a new approach to user interface development which is an evolution of the
model-based approach. The aim of the new, ontology-based approach is to eliminate the demerits of demerits
of the model-based approach but to conserve its merits and, as a consequence, to lower more the cost of
user interface development and maintenance. The main idea of our approach is to exchange models of
different interface components for corresponding ontologies. The ontology models accessible by the Internet
are used to form the models of there components.
