In this paper, the authors present a questionnaire-driven collaborative design methodology for the automatic generation of collaborative applications. The methodology is based on a repository of collaborative components and a knowledge base of its application and use modes. The repository includes components built by the team, as well as third-party components that use heterogeneous technologies like JavaScript, Java, Flash, and services and components provided by companies like Google and Facebook. Based on this methodology, they have built a Web 2.0 tool called REUSES (Rapid End-USEr Synthesis of Collaborative Applications), which provides facilities for the automatic generation of Web-based collaborative applications tailored to any particular community of end users.
