Just-In-Time Hypermedia


Many analytical or computational applications create documents and display screens in response to user queries “dynamically” or in “real time”. Hypermedia features must be generated “just in time” – automatically and dynamically. Conversely, the hypermedia features may have to cause target documents to be generated or re-generated. This paper presents a just-in-time hypermedia framework to provide hypermedia support of virtual documents.
