New concepts and technologies are being introduced continuously for application development in the World-Wide Web. Selecting the right implementation strategies and tools when building a Web application has become a tedious task, requiring in-depth knowledge and significant experience from both software developers and software managers.
The mission of this book is to guide the reader through the opaque jungle of Web technologies. Based on their long industrial and academic experience, Stefan Jablonski and his coauthors provide a framework architecture for Web applications which helps choose the best strategy for a given project. The authors classify common technologies and standards like .NET, CORBA, J2EE, DCOM, WSDL and many more with respect to platform, architectural layer, and application package, and guide the reader through a three-phase development process consisting of preparation, design, and technology selection steps. The whole approach is exemplified using a real-world case: the architectural design of an order-entry management system.

From the reviews:
"The authors have developed a conceptual framework that is based on drawing a clear line between the so-called Web application architectures and Web platform architectures. I find this quite adequate, since it helps make a distinction between concepts ... . All in all, this is an interesting book, one that was clearly necessary to shed a little light on the plethora of acronyms, and the relationships among them, that a typical Web engineer must face." (Rafael Corchuelo, Computing Reviews, February, 2005)
