Conference paper


Nowadays, there are many and different model-driven Web methodologies which are being applied with success in real environments. However, as new ones are frequently appearing in this changing time, methodology designers have to change and update them constantly. Furthermore, concepts and terminology are different in many cases, and the need of quality assessment of this type of methodologies arises every day. QuEF (quality evaluation framework) is a framework that helps to analyse, control and evaluate the quality of model-driven Web methodologies in order to control them and make quality continuous improvements. This chapter describes a tool support useful to implement QuEF.
