In recent years web applications allows users to interact or collaborate with each other in a social media dialogue, in contrast to websites where very few users view the static content that was created for them. A rapidly growing trend in web applications is the development of user interfaces through Rich Internet Applications. Among other capabilities, RIAs offer high interactivity and native multimedia support, giving them a major advantage over legacy web systems. In this paper we propose a model which converts legacy web application into web 2.0 application. Conversion to the Web2.0 is twofold, i.e. automatic as well as manual. Our proposal focuses on the user interface adaptation of existing web 1.0 applications (Legacy) to Web 2.0 and add new RIA features with some good enhancement in legacy web system by web assessment.
