ABSTRACT
Web applications have become more and more popular because of their significant advantages over traditional applications. However, it has been widely recognized that there is a lack of systematic approaches in developing web applications, and most of web application development processes are ad-hoc. This leads to problems in engineering and maintaining the applications. As a result, web engineering has been established as a discipline to apply software engineering concepts in order to set a standard for web application development and to produce a quality web application. There are a number of methods, which have been proposed for the development of web applications. Nonetheless, most of the methods focus on design models rather than analysis models of the applications. Furthermore, some methods have adopted traditional analysis models which cannot completely capture some specific requirements for web applications, such as presentation requirements, information that should appear to users and so on. This leads to a number of repeated rounds of design if parts of requirements specifically for web-based aspects are missing. We propose a model called “UML-Based Web Application Analysis Model (WEBA)”, which is an extension of the standard Unified Modeling Language (UML). UML has been used for web applications development, but for design rather than analysis of the applications. We extend UML so that it can be used for collecting requirement which are specific to web applications. Our WEBA models consist of application domain model for business data, web use case model for business function, page composition model and page navigation model for web construction.
