Using Software Engineering Principles to Develop a Web-Based Application
In the United States, the software development industry is about a $220 billions industry. Therefore, the need to produce accessible, reliable and trustworthy software that is within budget and that also meets the demands of the heterogeneous user can sometimes become an overwhelming task by organizations. Since, its inception in the late 1960s, software engineering has used software processes as systematic approaches that lead to the development of software applications. However, with the introduction of the Internet and the World Wide Web, there have been changes to the way that software is produced. The aim of this paper is to present the results of an inquiry that introduced to undergraduate software engineering students an approach to developing a web-based application.
