Abstract

This article discusses the personalization of graphic documents intended as blanks for educational design. The blanks of design documents are filled in with design personal data in order to reduce the complexity of the subsequent design. The so-called parametric personalization is considered, in which the parameters of the figures that are already placed in the blank of the project document are adjusted. A document template is created manually using a graphical editor. Pre-marking of personalization labels is performed when creating a template. Subsequently, computer processing of the template is performed, in which the personalization labels in the template are replaced with personal data from the database. Templates are processed using situation-oriented databases that allow integrating heterogeneous data under the control of a highly abstract hierarchical situational model. The concept of virtual documents that are mapped onto heterogeneous external data is used in the situational model to specify access to data. Features of the graphic formats VDX, VSDX, ODG and FODG are considered in the aspect of mapping virtual documents. It requires both mapping entirely to an XML file for VDX and FODG formats, as well as to some XML files in a ZIP archive for VSDX and ODG formats. The construction of situational models to ensure the personalization of graphic templates is considered. The XML file of the document or part of the document is loaded into the DOM object. A search in the XML tree of nodes containing identification tags is specified using XPath expressions. The found tags are replaced by the corresponding values from the personal database. The results obtained are used in practice in the process of educational design of conceptual and logical database models at the Faculty of Informatics. There is a decrease in the complexity of the routine part of the project, achieved through personalization.
