Abstract

Hypertext has been alternatively defined as non-sequential reading and writing and as an associative database in which nodes containing information are interconnected by links. Users are able to move from node to node, using the links, in order to build a trail of interest through the available materials. Hypertext applications have already appeared in the areas of end-user support and multimedia, despite a lack of hypertext implementation standards. So far, few database researchers have systematically assessed the process of hypertext development. Yet a development methodology is needed if hypertext is to take its place among other database architectures as an effective means of information storage and retrieval. This paper proposes a systematic hypertext development methodology based on insights gained in a number of hypertext development projects. This proposed methodology addresses the desired objectives of a hypertext system development approach.
