One approach for eliminating commutative pairs of elements in web applications
MetadataShow full item record
Nowadays web applications contain graphical elements which are often connected in a way that reflects relationship between them. Connections have different structure depending on needs of application. A common type of structure used to describe relationship between elements consists of four members, two of which are elements and two lines represent relationship between them. This paper presents an approach to eliminate commutative pairs in array of elements with mutually exclusive connections. The ECOMPAIR (Elimination of COMmutative PAIRs) algorithm allows using one line with associated descriptions to link two elements. Experimental results obtained from applying the ECOMPAIR algorithm on jsPlumb library for visualization show significant reduction on number of elements necessary for visualization.
