A workbench to support development and maintenance of world-wide web

Dalton, Susannah (1996) A workbench to support development and maintenance of world-wide web. Masters thesis, Durham University.



The World-Wide Web is one of the most dominant features of the Internet. In its short life it has become an important part of information technology, having a role to play in all sectors. Unfortunately, it has many problems too. Due to its fast evolution, World-Wide Web document development is undisciplined and has resulted in the appearance of much poor quality work. This is also widely due to the inexperience of authors, the lack of conventions, standards or guidelines and useful tools for development and maintenance of Web documents. One solution to the major problems of poor quality of World-Wide Web documents is the improved maintenance of such documents. Maintenance is an important area that, similar to software engineering, receives little attention compared with development. In order to address the problems of World-Wide Web document maintenance, research into the area was carried out through a literature survey and case studies of the organisations that manage World-Wide Web sites. The results of this research led to producing a workbench which provides support to both developers and maintainers of Web documents. This workbench consists of methods, guidelines and tools for World-Wide Web development and maintenance.
