Tjandra, Indra,




The use of the Internet and the World Wide Web (WWW) has grown at a phenomenal rate. The Web has become the solution for information exchange, user interaction and business processing. However, building dynamic, interactive and maintainable Web-based applications is not an easy task. Technologies currently used for Web presentation generation do not separate the presentation and logic. This requires people of two different skill sets to be involved at the same time, therefore applications are difficult to develop and maintain. In recent years, several frameworks have been developed to remedy the problem. But they all have some limitations and still cannot completely separate the application presentation from its logic. The current study attempts to provide an approach of completely separating the presentation and logic of Web-based applications by extending the traditional Model-View-Controller architecture. The research includes two parts. The first part provides a template language for representing Web pages containing dynamic contents without including application logic. The second part provides a framework that integrates the dynamically generated information with the predefined Web templates to generate Web page on the fly.
