Abstract

System behaviors specify the major functions of domain specific Web Information Systems (WIS). Traditional techniques can not satisfy various requirements or manage innumerous data while developing WIS behaviors. People appeal to a smart tool for implementing the WIS behaviors. This article makes the following contributions: (1) Proposes the concept of domain ontology and behavior ontology to describe the contents and operations of WIS; (2) Extends traditional ECA model to characterize the triggers, parameters, actions as well as validations of WIS behaviors; (3) Analyses the relationships between domain ontology and behavior ontology with rule sets; (4) Implements a tool named WISE Builder with four algorithms to help users building behavior ontology with domain ontology; (5)Shows the feasibility of this technique in a real application case.
