Abstract: Traditionally business software has been hosted in the client's business, typically referred to as 'in-house' or 'on-premises' solution that is hosted on a client-owned server. In SAAS software deployment, for servicing multiple clients, vendors deploy same software instance in multiple machines like multiple instances. The implementation would be done in vendor or client location. This type of deployment model consumes more resources such as software implementation effort for each machine and hardware resources. Multi-tenant web application maintenance issues are usage calculation for application, tenant data security issue in database and file server, authorisation control for application resources access and application deployment platform management of resource usage monitor and control for service level agreement (SLA) for response time maintenance. Multi-tenant web framework (MWF) provides standard set of components and utilities that expedites the process of developing multi-tenant functionalities and converts an ordinary web application in to a multi-tenant enabled application. MWF consists of features that include authentication, authorisation, tenant tracking, application platform controller and securing tenant data.
