Instance Interaction Unit

Problem

An object or an entity needs to be presented to the user.

Principle

Presentation

Forces

Solution

Select the type of the object to present (the class).

Define what information it is needed to show (Display Set), what actions can be performed (Actions) & what other related data can be accessed to complement the information (Navigation).

Rationale

Objects present in the domain are easy to recognize for users in the system as well. Keeping the same granularity in the User Interface helps to communicate with the users in their domain language.

Examples

Specification

As suggested in the solution section, three elemental patterns will help to define the semantics of an Instance IU.

Representation

An Instance Interaction Unit is represented by a wireframe box showing its name with a small circle in the upper-right corner.
