Journey To The Past (12): Generic and Dynamic Hypertexts (2000-2001)

The topic of my second thesis was the implementation of a tool for generic hypertext creation in Java. The resulting system was cleanly designed from the beginning until the end, and still pleases my somewhat higher standards of today. I developed the editor (MVC-approach using observer mechanisms for loose coupling), including features like HTML content editing for graph nodes, an automation engine for building concrete hypertexts from generic templates, and a hypertext runtime implemented using Java Servlets.
