Enabling the user interface

by S. Uhlir
Presenting a consistent interface to the user is one of the objectives of Systems Application Architecture (SAA). The development of SAA applications is simplified by providing enabling interfaces which help an application developer support the SAA user interface. Rather than providing a single-level en-abling interface, SAA offers a spectrum of levels spread over two interfaces: the SAA Presentation Interface and the SAA Dialog Interface. This gives the application developer the freedom to choose the appropriate level of interface for the application.
