Abstract

We present the design of a computer-aided environment, RMCase, to support thedesign and construction of hypermedia applications. The environment is based uponthe Relationship Management methodology. MCase supports hypermedia designand development activities. Support for cognitive design processes is achievedthrough three fundamental premises that form the foundation of RMCase: (1) fluidfeedback loops between the various methodological stages, (2) manipulation of objectsat the instance level, and (3) lightweight prototyping . To achieve this, RMCase itselfis designed as a hypermedia application, where hypertextual navigation implementsfeedback loops. Instance objects can be cloned and abstraction/instantiationmechanisms are envisioned to facilitate designers back and forth movements betweenthe abstract and the concrete layers of an application. As a result, RMCase willsupport bottom-up, top-down and middle-out software development styles.
