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."
