Effective development of web applications requires process support just as does traditional development. In the context of an established OO/CBD process, OPEN (Object-oriented Process, Environment and Notation), we identify the special requirements of web application development in order to add these elements to the OPEN repository of process components. In particular, we focus on the need for new Techniques to accomplish Tasks and Activities previously identified as well as focussing on the role that individuals need to play in a web development team.
