Abstract: Developing web based application is a time-consuming task. Because of the diversity and the complexity of web application, it is difficult to develop web application in an object-oriented manner. A new research field designated as web engineering aims at providing a disciplined and repeatable process, development environment, and guidelines to handle the diversity and complexity of web application development [Ginige2001]. Object-oriented hypermedia design methodology (OOHDM) breaks the web development down into three phases. In every phase, there is a model used to describe the structure of the web application. Here, we study the approach which helps the developer implement the web application with a model-driven approach. We accept the OOHDM approach, but expand the abstract user interface model, and simplify the navigational model. This makes the boundary between view layer and control layer clearer. In terms of the navigational model, we propose an approach to describe the model and generate the model file as an XML file. Furthermore, we also present an approach to model, implement and generate web user-interfaces in an object- oriented manner. We validate our approach by implementing the XFlash framework. Furthermore, we adopt the sample web application introduced in [Daniel 1998b] to outline our model-driven approach, and generate a final prototype system with Ajax features.
