Kadyamatimba, Armstrong and Mariani, John (1994): Querying by Iconic User Interface on an Object-Oriented Database Desktop. In: Stephanidis, Constantine and Carbonell, Noelle (eds.) Proceedings of the 3rd ERCIM Workshop on User Interfaces for All November 3-4, 1994, Obernai, France. p. 2.

In (Kadyamatimba 1996) we described our basic concept of Desktop Objects for supporting browsing and direct manipulation schema evolution with the Oggetto OODB (Mariani 1992). Iconic User Interface (IUI) is an extension to provide a fully integrated querying service. Substantial work exists on graphical interfaces to databases: QBD* (Angelaccio 1990), OdeView (Agrawal 1990) and Moggetto (Sawyer 1995). Most of these interfaces support the browsing of schema of databases. However, OdeView extensions (Dar 1995) support browsing and querying but as separate operations. Querying operations should be integrated with browsing mechanism as in PESTO (Carey 1996). However, the difference with our work is that we exploit the desktop's direct manipulation to integrate the querying operations and results browsing. The focus of IUI is not on the statement and formulation of the query, although this is certainly a major part of any future work on the system. Rather, once queries have been stated (potentially by expert users), our concern is that they are easily available and useful to even novice users, and that their appearance and presentation of results are potentially indistinguishable from the browsing process supported by our desktop. This is a major diversion from some of the systems mentioned above. The next sections describes the IUI.
