The Framework-based Design Method for Web Engineering (FrameWeb) is a Web Engineering method that targets Web-based Information Systems (WIS) that use certain kinds of framework (Front Controller, Dependency Injection, Object/Relational Mapping) in their architectures.
The method was originally proposed by prof. Vítor E. Silva Souza during his Masters degree. An evolution of the method using model-driven tools and techniques was proposed by Beatriz Franco Martins for her Masters under prof. Vítor’s supervision. New students have joined more recently, building on top of the model-driven foundations established by Beatriz.
