Project description

The objective of this project is to design and evaluate an environment for the rapid prototyping of collaborative applications. This environment is based on a descriptive language to specify the behaviour of the application, on scenarios that are written to illustrate typical collaborative situations, and a run-time system which is able to simulate the appearance of the application. One major feature of this environment is that it allows to perform simulations of multi-user applications with only one real user, the other being simulated through the scenario. The environment also allows some flexibility in the processing of the scenarios, for example it is possible to switch to another user view during the simulation.
