Web Engineering - Data on Web Engineering Detailed by E.R. Luna and Co-Authors
2011 MAR 21 - (VerticalNews.com) -- "Web designers usually ignore how to model real user expectations and goals, mainly due to the large and heterogeneous audience of the Web. This fact leads to websites which are difficult to comprehend by visitors and complex to maintain by designers; these problems could be ameliorated if users are able to evaluate the application under development providing their feedback," scientists writing in the Journal of Web Engineering report ...read more
Web Engineering - Reports summarize web engineering study results from H. Han and co-researchers
2009 DEC 7 - (VerticalNews.com) -- "Nowadays, the Web news article contents extraction is vital to provide news indexing and searching services. Most of the traditional methods need to analyze the layout of news pages to generate the wrappers manually or automatically," researchers in Tokyo, Japan report.
"It is a costly work and needs much maintenance during the extraction over a long period of time. In this paper, we construct an automatic Web news article contents extraction system based on RSS feeds. We propose an effective and efficient algorithm to extract the news article contents from the news pages without the analysis of news sites before extraction. We calculate the relevance between the news title and each sentence in the news page to detect the news article contents. Our approach is applicable to the general types of news RSS feeds and independent of news page layout," wrote H. Han and colleagues ...read more
Web Engineering - Reports from University of Alberta advance knowledge in web engineering
"Cookie usage amongst five popular dynamic web application frameworks is analyzed providing a per-country breakdown of platform adoption and the establishment of a link between dynamic web technologies and first-party and sessional cookies. The prevalence of vendor-specific third-party technologies both globally and within specific countries is studied. Although global leaders emerged, a number of country-specific market leaders were discovered, suggesting that country-specific niche technologies are competing with the globally dominant technologies within specific markets," wrote A.F. Tappenden and colleagues, University of Alberta ...read more
