There is a growing demand for the development of multi-device, adaptive user interfaces - interfaces that will run on and adapt to the characteristics of multiple display devices and networks as well as multiple users and user tasks. We describe a design and implementation environment for the development of such interfaces. This tool allows developers to specify their desired interfaces using an abstract set of screen element and layout constructs. It then generates a Java Server Page implementation using a custom tag library that realises a multi-device, adaptive interface. We compare and contrast our approach to other techniques and describe our experiences using it.
