The Laboratory for Software Research at Texas A&M and the Lockheed Software Technology Center in Austin are working to develop an environment to create user interfaces for embedded systems. The system is called the Graphical Specification System (GSS). Two parts combine to make up GSS: a wide-spectrum graphical specification language and a rapid prototyping capability. A complete specification for a user interface includes graphical display, how the user and computer interact, and how the user-interface software interacts with the application software. GSS has specification forms for user-interface tools and hooks in the graphical specification to permit lower level textual specifications. GSS also has an executive component that is an endless loop that recognizes user actions and informs the appropriate object(s) of these actions, that recognizes incoming application data and sends it through the appropriate back-end dataflow path, and performs any remaining executive functions.
