In this paper, we discuss different object-oriented design structures that should be used in the process of building Web applications. We base our discussion on the OOHDM approach for defining a Web application model, in particular, the separation of the navigational model from the conceptual model. We focus on the systematic application of different design patterns (such as Observer and Decorator) for decoupling different aspects of a Web model. We briefly discuss some specific patterns that may appear in this kind of applications and we introduce additional concepts such as Web frameworks as a conceptual approach to maximize design reuse in Web applications.
