Engineering Web Applications

New or Used: $111.08
Nowadays, Web applications are almost omnipresent. The Web has become a platform not only for information delivery, but also for eCommerce systems, social networks, mobile services, and distributed learning environments. Engineering Web applications involves many intrinsic challenges due to their distributed nature, content orientation, and the requirement to make them available to a wide spectrum of users who are unknown in advance. The authors discuss these challenges in the context of well-established engineering processes, covering the whole product lifecycle from requirements engineering through design and implementation to deployment and maintenance. They stress the importance of models in Web application development, and they compare well-known Web-specific development processes like WebML, WSDM and OOHDM to traditional software development approaches like the waterfall model and the spiral model. .

From the reviews: "This well-written book describes each step of the Web application development process. It covers abstractions, methods, tools, models, and concepts that will give readers a global perspective ... . it is suitable for students as a complete overview of Web development, its figures, illustration, and language are quite complex, making it appropriate for an advanced academic audience. ... In conclusion, this complete, nontechnical guidebook can be used by academics and advanced students as a generalized approach to Web application engineering."
