A Direct Communication Model for Process Management in an Open Hypermedia System

Wilkins, Robert J., Heath, Ian and Hall, Wendy (1993) A Direct Communication Model for Process Management in an Open Hypermedia System s.n.

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


This paper describes the design and implementation of a new, direct communication model for the Microcosm open hypermedia system. Both the current and new communication models are described in detail, along with the major differences between the two, and how those differences will affect the overall performance of the system. In addition, it describes the effect that the new model will have on user interaction with the system. A prototype system constructed from a small subset of the existing Microcosm modules is described. Results derived from comparing the two systems and conclusions are then presented.
