Abstract: Model-Driven Web Engineering is a new approach for Web Information Systems development whose basic assumption is the consideration of models as first-class entities. Basically, each step of the process consists of a model transformation that generates one or more target models from one or more source models. However, the special nature of the behavioural models implied at the early stages of a Model-Driven Web Engineering process complicates the specification of a model transformation that works for any input model. In such situations, it is not feasible to automate the whole development process since some design decisions have to be considered before executing each transformation. This work shows how we solve this problem in SOD-M, a model-driven approach for the development of Service-Oriented Web applications. The technique proposed is based on the use of weaving models as annotation models and it can be easily generalised to other domains and contexts.

Keywords: model-driven web engineering; annotation models; model transformation; web information systems; web services; weaving models.
