This book seeks to motivate students in this new discipline, using concepts, methods, techniques and tools to demonstrate how to design, implement and test web applications. The book also demonstrates the distinctions between software engineering and web engineering: The shorter lead times that Web Engineering has compared to its software counterpart; whilst demonstrating the rapid prototyping and agile methods of development needed to meet these criteria. Web Engineering also features a constant focus on interactivity, with a far greater emphasis on multimedia than its software counterpart. The book highlights the importance of the HCI and interface aspects of Web Engineering, and their importance to the visual nature of the medium.
Yet the text also also highlights the need to examine and re-use the body of knowledge found within Software Engineering. This book demonstrates how to use that knowledge within the web environment, in order to achieve a highly disciplined and methodical means of producing web based software.
