Abstract. The WWW has turned into a development and run-time environment for large-scale and complex applications. Such
sophisticated applications are being deployed in increasing numbers without having been developed according to appropriate
methodologies and quality standards. The main reason for this ad hoc development philosophy is the lack of specialised train-
ing/education on the web engineering subject domain. This domain/discipline is new, still immature and has recently started
getting the attention of researchers, developers, and other major players in the web-based application development market and
training market. There is now justifiable and increasing concern about the manner in which students and lifelong learners are
