FROM THE BWW CONCEPTUAL MODEL TO THE DESIGN OF FAMILY OF WEB APPLICATION

Roberto Paiano, Andrea Pandurino, Enrico Pulimeno

Abstract

The phase of analysis and design of a modern web application with its multi-user and multi-device features is surely a real complex task. Moreover during the design, the aspects of ergonomics, usability and human computer interaction have to take into consideration in leading way. To answer to these requirements, many methodologies were born. Such approaches are yet valid for the design of a single WA but became in crisis when the main goal is to develop a framework for family of applications in a specific domain. In this paper, starting from a knowledge base obtained using an ontological approach to BWW, we propose the guidelines of changeover from the domain conceptual model to the Interactive Dialogue Model (IDM) for families of applications. From the IDM model, it will be possible to derive a single application through the specialization. In order to check the validity of the proposed considerations, we create a case study in the environmental domain. Starting from the conceptual model, first we design the IDM model of the family of applications and then we derive from it the IDM model of a specific web application.
