Definition and Generation of Self-contained Digital Forms based on the OASP4JS Reference Architecture
Within the scope of this thesis, we present an approach for defining and generating self-contained digital forms based on an industrial architecture. The target environment for generation is specified by the OASP4JS Reference Architecture for web-based business applications.
Our goal is to reduce the development efforts for forms by utilizing a declarative language to describe forms independent of their underlying implementation technologies. The declarative form description represents the input to a generator transforming the abstract form into a representation conforming to the target architecture. The conceptual considerations are followed by the implementation of a prototype enabling the generation of declaratively defined forms and their integration into an OASP4JS-based business application.
In contrast to other solutions to form generation in an industrial context, the focus of this thesis lies on developing a lightweight solution that seamlessly integrates with a target architecture and its technical infrastructure.
