dc.description.abstract When I use the term Repository Driven User Interface (RDUI), it simply means that besides the normal data that users save and use in the running of a business, other data, concerning the user interface is also stored in the repository. The main challenge with these kinds of systems is that they tend to be slower than their conventional counterparts. Quality characteristics that are specifically applicable to Repository Driven User Interfaces include maintainability, portability, reliability, usability, functionality and efficiency. One gains quality when using OO and SBA to build the Repository Driven User Interface. Object-oriented programming is a faster way of developing and maintaining systems. Service Based Architecture gives greater flexibility and causes maintenance to be less. Objects are easily maintainable, which improves developer productivity. The functionality of the system should also improve, because the objects are smaller and mistakes picked up easily. The reusable component or object also makes it easier for developers to write client applications. They can simply pick the service that they want from the available services. Adding new services are just as easy, using Service Based Architecture. en
