Objectives The objective of the course is to enables students

  • to understand the specific characteristics of internet applications and their impact on the development process and modeling methodology.
  • to understand the role that modeling plays in the development of internet applications.
  • to understand the strength and weaknesses and thus the applicability of modeling approaches with respect to various internet application types.
  • to be familiar with various web access structures and thus be able apply them appropriately.
  • to develop internet applications by means of an state-of-the art model-driven approach.
Subject Characteristics of internet applications; role of modelling in web engineering; basic model-driven engineering for internet applications; overview on specific approaches (WebML, OOWS, OO-H, UWE, etc.); model-driven development of internet applications with WebML and WebRatio.
Criteria for evaluation Grades will be based on the results of a individual smaller exercise project, a larger project conducted in groups and an oral presentation thereof.
Methods Slide presentation with cases studies; guided workshop, individual exercise with tutoring, group-wise project work
