INTEGRATING AGILE AND MODEL-DRIVEN PRACTICES IN A METHODOLOGICAL FRAMEWORK FOR THE WEB INFORMATION SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT

Paloma Cáceres, Esperanza Marcos, Valeria de Castro

Abstract

Nowadays, the Web information systems (WIS) development has become an interesting area in both research and business world. On the one hand, the WIS development needs specific methodologies for taking into account certain specific aspects for Web systems. Therefore, traditional methodologies do not facilitate a quick and light development as the agile methodologies. On the other hand, the system modeling becomes too specific because new technologies are emerging and becoming popular constantly. In this way, OMG proposes the Model-driven Architecture (MDA), a model-driven framework for software development. Due to the advantages of both agile and model-driven proposals, a topic of interest is the approach between them. In this way, we are working in a model-driven methodological framework for agile development of WIS, named MIDAS which is presented in this paper.
