In order to support rapid prototyping and efficient construction of user interface software, the Amulet user interface development environment uses a prototype-instance object model integrated with a constraint solver. The important innovations in the Amulet object and constraint systems are the automatic management of a part-owner hierarchy in addition to the prototype instance hierarchy, the support for multiple constraint solvers at the same time, control over slot inheritance, flexible demons, and a convenient integration of the models with C without requiring a pre-processor.
