Abstract: The paper presents two UIMS prototypes GIGA (Generatore di Interfacce Grafico ed Automatico) and GIGA+ which provide an environment for defining and handling different types of man-machine dialogue. Both tools are based on the user interface Seeheim model and the system builder approach. Main emphasis has been put on the dialogue control component. Different notations have been adopted: ATN (augment transition network) notation to support sequential dialogue in GIGA and Petri nets notation to support multi-threaded dialogues in GIGA+. The tools have been implemented in Unix and X-Window environments.
Keywords: user interface development; user interface Seeheim model; augment transition network; grahic interface tool GIGA; Unix; X-Window.
