This paper describes Duma: a Data-based User interface management system for Multimedia Application, which is embedded in a multimedia document editor framework (MMDEF). MMDEF is the core of a multimedia document editor, which can adapt to externally defined media types and operations, and enables the user to work on documents composed of multimedia objects, including objects of newly defined types, through a coherent user interface. Duma introduces an extensible data model called interactor that abstracts the user interaction between application semantics and user interface components. Also, Duma's data-based UIMS architecture embodies an interactive UI design environment in which interfaces to the interactor model are given.
