7. Limitations of SUIP release 1.0
The main direction of the approach supported by SUIP is forward, that is, generation starts always with scenarios, whereas modifications in the resultant object specifications and UI prototypes cannot be mapped back automatically into the scenario set. Eventually, automatic modification of scenarios through the UI prototype should be supported.
SUIP may be used in developing reactive systems exhibiting windows and widgets interfaces. However, in its current form, it fails to support alternative UI paradigms.
The range of widgets supported by SUIP is limited to five, but it may be easily extended to support other widget styles .
Our vision of a professional tool that extends SUIP is a CASE tool supplying, beyond the functionality of the algorithms implemented in SUIP, graphical editors for the UML diagrams needed, as well as a "widget tool" for editing CollDs. Such a tool may visualize the widgets generated from interactive messages and may allow changing widget styles by direct manipulation.
