The patent application (Publication Number: US20240036835A1) describes a system that includes persistent storage containing predefined user interface (UI) component templates and a representation of a web page with a runtime UI component. The system is designed to receive a request for the web page from a client device, determine runtime parameter values associated with the request, select context-specific UI components based on these values and predefined templates, generate a context-specific representation of the web page, and transmit the response to the client device. The runtime UI component includes a mapping between possible runtime parameter values and predefined UI component templates, allowing for dynamic generation of UI components based on the request.

Furthermore, the system can handle multiple instantiations of the runtime UI component, each reserving a portion of the web page for dynamic UI components. The method involves determining runtime parameter values, selecting context-specific UI components, and generating a context-specific representation of the web page. Additionally, the system can adjust the size of the empty portion of the web page based on the area occupied by the context-specific UI components. The patent application also includes a method and an article of manufacture with program instructions for implementing the described operations. Overall, the system aims to provide a dynamic and context-specific user interface experience based on runtime parameters and predefined templates stored in persistent storage.
