MDA-BASED DEVELOPMENT OF DATA-DRIVEN WEB APPLICATIONS

Attila Adamkó, Lajos Kollár

Abstract

Due to the last decade’s technological changes, the more or less static Web sites has been evolving into Web-based distributed applications in the past few years. Many competitive technologies have appeared but when modeling a Web application, details of current technologies should be detached from the model of the application domain since they are evolving very dinamically so they become obsolete relatively soon. We propose an MDA-based method which can be used for designing and implementing Web Information Systems in the above mentioned manner. Web applications are composed of several models (expressed in UML2): structural model describes the underlying data structure, composition model defines an abstract page structure, while navigational paths are modeled by navigational diagrams and use cases capture common user activities. By the help of XML, XSLT and XForms, prototypes can be generated from these UML models rapidly.
