In conventionally programmed systems for handling applications, prompting is supplied as a tool to assist the user in properly supplying the data needed by the system to execute the application. There is either no prompting to assist the user in defining the application that is to be executed or the prompting provided is so specialized to a particular application that it (the prompting) is useless when a different application is being addressed by the user. This prompting technique applies equally to the application definition (programming) activity as well as to the execution of those applications. In addition, the prompt itself is not defined by the user, but is a system default operation and occurs as a result of what the user is asking the system to perform.
