beContent: A Model-Driven Platform for Designing and Maintaining Web Applications

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 5648)


Model Driven Engineering (MDE) is increasingly gaining acceptance in the development of Web Applications as a mean to leverage abstraction and render business logic resilient to technological changes. This paper describes the beContent project with its modeling languages and tools, which aims at the automated generation of rich Web applications.
