WEB INFORMATION SYSTEM: A FOUR LEVEL ARCHITECTURE

Roberto Paiano, Anna Lisa Guido, Leonardo Mangia

Abstract

Business processes are playing a very important role in companies and the explicit introduction of them in Information System architecture is a must. According to the interest shown towards Web Application it is important to introduce a new web-oriented class of software, which is able to gives to the manager the possibility to operating directly with the process (we will talk about process oriented WIS - Web Information System). It is necessary to replace the three-level logic of the traditional application development (Data, Business Logic, Presentation), that hides processes in the Business Logic, with a four- level logic that allows to separate the process level from the application level: definition and management of the processes will be not tied solely to business logic. Our research (work in progress) focus is on an innovative framework (software architecture and methodology) for Information System development that links together the know-how acquired in Web Application design and in the process definition concepts.
