Structure-preserving transformations in pattern-driven groupware development
by Till Schummer, Stephan Lukosch
International Journal of Computer Applications in Technology (IJCAT), Vol. 25, No. 2/3, 2006

Abstract: In this article, we address groupware patterns from a holistic perspective. We discuss how a groupware application can gain wholeness from the application of structure-preserving transformations; two concepts that are important in the philosophy of Christopher Alexander. A concrete example shows how pattern sequences can support the development of a collaboration space for collaborative learning.
