Lightweight Web Application Framework and Its Application - Helping Improve Community Bus Timetables after Japan Earthquake

Yu Kitano, Hiroki Suguri, Atsushi Togashi

Abstract

We have identified four typical problems in building web applications: High cost of education for engineers; difficulty of distributed development; scope creep; and coupling of UI and business logic. To solve these problems, the authors developed lightweight methodology and Perl-based framework for web applications. In this paper, we discuss effectiveness of our approach compared with existing tools. We have successfully applied these techniques to development of web application for helping improve community bus timetables, which illustrates real-world usefulness of the methodology and framework.
