WebSoDa: A Tailored Data Binding Framework for Web Programmers Leveraging the WebSocket Protocol and HTML5 Microdata
Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE)
The data binding pattern is an established technique to couple user interface (UI) elements and data objects. Various markup languages (e.g. Microsoft XAML, Adobe MXML) integrate advanced data binding concepts in order to ease application development. However, the HTML standard does not embrace means for data binding although being the Web markup language supported by millions of Web programmers. Therefore, we propose a standard-compliant WebSocket-based Data Binding (WebSoDa) framework. The WebSoDa framework synchronizes data objects and UI elements by orchestrating a Microdata-based data binding language as well as a client-side and a server-side messaging component. Thus, developers may speed up the tedious task of implementing binding associations in Web applications.
