Herczeg, Jurgen, Hohl, Hubertus and Ressel, Matthias (1993): A New Approach to Visual Programming in User Interface Design. In: Proceedings of the Fifth International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction 1993. pp. 74-79.
To face prevailing problems with existing tools for interactively building graphical user interfaces we present a new object-oriented approach to implementing visual programming tools. This approach is employed by the user interface development environment XIT. It is based on the representation of knowledge for creating and manipulating interaction objects in the underlying user interface toolkit. This knowledge forms the basis for a set of higher-level tools, including interface builders, inspectors, browsers, and tracers, which may be applied to user interfaces created by either visual or conventional programming.

Ressel, Matthias, Hohl, Hubertus and Herczeg, Jurgen (1993): An Eventful Approach to Multi-Media, Multi-User Applications. In: Proceedings of the Fifth International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction 1993. pp. 428-433.
Existing software development tools and user interface toolkits assist application programmers in developing and implementing single-user applications with graphical user interface. However, multi-media and multi-user applications introduce new dimensions, like temporal aspects, concurrency, or sharing of objects, that are usually not supported by these tools. In this paper we describe the experience we made as we developed and implemented a distributed multi-user application in the domain of hyper-media document production. We describe the chosen event-based approach and how it makes it easier to augment existing software in order to support cooperative work as well as new kinds of temporal media.

Hohl, Hubertus, Herczeg, Jurgen and Ressel, Matthias (1993): An Interactive Design Environment for Graphical Browsers. In: Proceedings of the Fifth International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction 1993. pp. 585-590.
Browsing, viewed as an integral approach to exploring and directly manipulating large and complex information spaces, crucially depends on adequate graphical presentation and interaction techniques to support navigation. Going beyond available user interface development environments, which are poor in representing and graphically presenting application-specific information structures, we describe an integrated approach to developing domain-specific browsing tools. A set of extensible and reusable construction kits for browsing form an application-independent framework that provides powerful mechanisms for representing, presenting, and accessing complex information structures. This framework is integrated within a browser design environment which offers higher-level tools for building or modifying domain-specific browsers interactively. These tools are designed to be used by both application developers and end users, i.e. domain experts, to adapt and tailor browsers according to a particular application domain or to specific user needs.

Herczeg, Jurgen, Hohl, Hubertus and Ressel, Matthias (1992): Progress in Building User Interface Toolkits: The World According to XIT. In: Mackinlay, Jock D. and Green, Mark (eds.) Proceedings of the 5th annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology November 15 - 18, 1992, Monteray, California, United States. pp. 181-190.
User interface toolkits and higher-level tools built on top of them play an ever increasing part in developing graphical user interfaces. This paper describes the XIT system, a user interface development tool for the X Window System, based on Common Lisp, comprising user interface toolkits as well as high-level interactive tools organized into a layered architecture. We especially focus on the object-oriented design of the lower-level toolkits and show how advanced features for describing automatic screen layout, visual feedback, application links, complex interaction, and dialog control, usually not included in traditional user interface toolkits, are integrated.

Bocker, Heinz-Dieter and Herczeg, Jurgen (1990): Track - A Trace Construction Kit. In: Carrasco, Jane and Whiteside, John (eds.) Proceedings of the ACM CHI 90 Human Factors in Computing Systems Conference 1990, Seattle, Washington,USA. pp. 415-422.
Track is a kit to interactively construct environments that trace the execution of methods and the flow of messages between SMALLTALK-80 objects. It enables the user to set up traces by means of direct manipulation. This is done by placing obstacles between icons representing specific classes and instances much in the way a jumping course is set up. TRACK may be used to generate multiple visualizations of programs which may be concurrently run. It is a browsing and debugging tool as well as an algorithm animation tool. TRACK is tightly integrated with the standard tools of the SMALLTALK-80 programming environment.

Jerke, K.-H., Szabo, P., Lesch, A., Rossler, H., Schwab, Thomas and Herczeg, Jurgen (1990): Combining Hypermedia Browsing with Formal Queries. In: Diaper, Dan, Gilmore, David J., Cockton, Gilbert and Shackel, Brian (eds.) INTERACT 90 - 3rd IFIP International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction August 27-31, 1990, Cambridge, UK. pp. 593-598.
This paper describes a system for retrieving and presenting multimedia objects (e.g. text, picture, graphic, video and audio) that are organized in an information network. The system combines the approaches of hypertext and formal query: at any time the user can express his intentions both by a formal query or navigate through the information space according to the hypertext paradigm.

Bocker, Heinz-Dieter and Herczeg, Jurgen (1990): Browsing Through Program Execution. In: Diaper, Dan, Gilmore, David J., Cockton, Gilbert and Shackel, Brian (eds.) INTERACT 90 - 3rd IFIP International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction August 27-31, 1990, Cambridge, UK. pp. 991-996.
The system TRACK is a trace component for animation and debugging of SMALLTALK-80 programs Unlike traditional tracers it is designed as a construction kit utilizing interaction techniques based on graphical visualization and direct manipulation. A trace is specified by manipulating graphical objects in a trace window. Different trace windows may provide insight into different parts of a program. This paper describes how TRACK interacts with the standard programming tools of SMALLTALK-80 (class browsers, inspectors, debuggers, etc.) and how tracing and browsing techniques are combined to visualize the execution of a program.
