    Developing graphical user interfaces (GUIs) such as the OS/2 Presentation Manager or Microsoft Windows is characterised by the use of large function call libraries, usually known as APIs (application programmer interfaces), coupled with an event-driven program structure which is completely different to normal procedural programming. These two factors contribute to the long, shallow learning curve associated with becoming expert in this type of programming. GUI applications also tend to have far more code involved than a textual application, again because of the richness and complexity of the environment. CASE:PM and CASE:W tools are presented as a new approach to the problem. They apply knowledge-based techniques to generate a skeleton application in source code which contains the correct program structure and many of the API calls required. This increases productivity and reduces the learning curve whilst retaining all the advantages of development in a standard 3GL View full abstract»

    The X Window System is the current de-facto standard for window management on workstations with high resolution bitmapped displays. An application programmer using these workstations will encounter X both as a user working within the X environment and also as a programmer using X to develop graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for their applications. The basic concepts of X are described, and a brief description of the toolkits and tools available to an application programmer wanting to use X is given. Some current problems encountered using X are discussed and some pointers to future directions for GUI development environments are given View full abstract»

    Addresses the area of graphical user interfaces (GUIs) and open systems. In particular, the author talks about tools available that allow one to use GUIs to provide seamless integration between a variety of different open systems architectures. The role of GUIs in the future development of computer applications for open systems is stressed. The interworking of DOS, Unix and their GUIs is discussed View full abstract»
