Since its original inception back in 1989 the Web has changed into an environment where Web applications range from small-scale information dissemination applications, often developed by non-IT professionals, to large-scale, commercial, enterprise-planning and scheduling applications, developed by multidisciplinary teams of people with diverse skills and backgrounds and using cutting-edge, diverse technologies.

As an engineering discipline, Web engineering must provide principles, methodologies and frameworks to help Web professionals and researchers develop applications and manage projects effectively. Mendes and Mosley have selected experts from numerous areas in Web engineering, who contribute chapters where important concepts are presented and then detailed using real industrial case studies. After an introduction into the discipline itself and its intricacies, the contributions range from Web effort estimation, productivity benchmarking and conceptual and model-based application development methodologies, to other important principles such as usability, reliability, testing, process improvement and quality measurement. This is the first book that looks at Web engineering from a measurement perspective.

The result is a self-containing, comprehensive overview detailing the role of measurement and metrics within the context of Web engineering. This book is ideal for professionals and researchers who want to know how to use sound principles for the effective management of Web projects, as well as for courses at an advanced undergraduate or graduate level.

Dr. Emilia Mendes has worked in software development and management for 10 years, before obtaining her PhD and becoming a full-time academic in Computer Science at the University of Auckland, NZ. She is the principal investigator in the Tukutuku Research project, which aims to collect data about Web projects and use it to develop Web c...

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book represents a respectable attempt to advance the concepts of the emerging discipline of Web engineering. It is mostly oriented towards technical management, and stresses empirical investigations and testing issues. This makes the book unique in the current market. . As most of the topics addressed are not covered sufficiently in other current literature, I recommend the book to Web practitioners. It can also be valuable educational material for graduate students." (M. Bielikova, Computing Reviews, August, 2006)
