  4. 4. Goals and approach The goals of the new user interface will be as follows. • Provide a unified user interface technology • Offer a fluent user experience by avoiding page loads • Offer a solution which is search engine optimised • To retain the current functionality offered in both JSPUI and XMLUI • Improve the interoperability between DSpace and other applications To achieve this, the new user interface will build with Angular 2. The XMLUI and JSPUI user interfaces are decommissioned.
