A steadily growing trend in Web applications is the development of user interfaces through rich Internet applications. Among other capabilities, RIAs offer high interactivity and native multimedia support, giving them a major advantage over standard HTML. To update existing HTML Web applications, the authors propose the RUX-Model, which facilitates the user interface adaptation of existing Web 1.0 applications to Web 2.0. Their proposal focuses on new RIA capacities that exploit the data and business logic already provided in legacy Web models.
