Enhancing Usefulness of Declarative Programming Frameworks through Complete Integration
Konferensbidrag (offentliggjort, men ej förlagsutgivet), 2002

The Gisela framework for declarative programming was de- veloped with the specific aim of providing a tool that would be useful for knowledge representation and reasoning within real-world applications. To achieve this, a complete integration into an object-oriented application development environment was used. The framework and methodology developed provide two alternative application programming interfaces (apis): Programming using objects or programming using a traditional equational declarative style. In addition to providing complete integration, Gisela also allows extensions and modificationsdue to the general computation model and well-defined apis. We give a brief overview of the declarative model underlying Gisela and we present the methodologyproposed for building applications together with some real examples.
