Aiming at the common problems of intelligent document platform-dependency, this paper proposes an MVC-based (Model View Controller-based) intelligent document model using UIML (User Interface Markup Language). The model is made on the basis of the previous work of our team, and the difference is that the new model separates user interface and interaction descriptions from the view component to make the intelligent document model much more independent of platform and programming language. To verify the intelligent document model, we implemented a prototype, which can support intelligent operations. The test result shows that our approach is correct. The model not only follows MVC framework, but also provides good flexibility and independence. View Full-Text
