Managing Information on the Web
One of the major issues in which Web Engineering differs from the traditional computing applications is the information or content management. The software developers until now have dealt with the data more in terms of storage and retrieval techniques and fine-tuning the performance of a given application. The development of Web-based systems forcefully brings to the front the questions of content management (information modelling, authorship, volume, rate of change, and maintenance). The textual and hypertextual characteristics of Web-based content make it imperative that all Web developers understand the nature of the information their applications will have to deal with.
