As modern organizations migrate from older information architectures to new Web-based systems, the discipline of software engineering is changing both in terms of technologies and methodologies. There is a need to examine this new frontier from both a theoretical and pragmatic perspective, and offer not only a survey of new technologies and methodologies but discussions of the applicability and pros/cons of each.
Software Engineering for Modern Web Applications: Methodologies and Technologies presents current, effective software engineering methods for the design and development of modern Web-based applications, offering scholars, researchers, and practitioners innovative research on the theoretical frameworks, structures, management, and implications software engineering for modern Web applications.
