Rules and Patterns for Website Orchestration - ISTA 2009

Abstract: Information-intensive websites are constantly changing. It concerns the enhancement as well as the maintenance of existing content, also layout changes are common practice. Changes often imply the need to reorganise some content parts to keep an adequate representation. At present, such changes will be performed statically, changing the rules of presentation regarding each content object. However, it is possible to generalise the content presentation in the way that layout definitions and restrictions determine the representation of content objects or their types. Therefore, this paper proposes dynamic placement and representation of content objects to avoid manual customisations and grave errors in layout development. The approach is based on patterns that allow to change and adapt the layout as well as help to reuse components and concepts.
