d. Dynamism

Most current generation hypermedia systems deal with static information. Future systems need the ability to dynamically reconfigure the network in response to changes made to the network or its contents. Virtual or dynamic structures (active objects) are similar to dynamically generated views in relational databases. Virtual structures are possible only when current models are changed to adapt to changing information.
