Abstract

Information integration with local radiance (IILR) is a system designed for use in web development frameworks that allows for the creation of polymorphic widgets based on small schema fragments and mappings to local schema that allow non-expert users to instantiate these widgets in their site. Here, we present results of a user study using IILR. We show that non-expert users can, and for the most part enjoy, creating the mappings required for our system. We describe the different behaviors observed of our participants and relate these behaviors to the survey data from our users.
