The development and evolution of Web applications is viewed from an engineering perspective that relies on and accommodates the knowledge inherent in patterns. A methodology for pattern-oriented Web engineering (POWE) that deploys patterns as means for assuring the quality of Web applications is proposed. POWE consists of a sequence of steps that include the identification of stakeholder types, following a suitable development process model, identification of relevant quality attributes, and selection and use of suitable patterns. To support decision making and to place POWE in context, the feasibility issues involved in each step are highlighted. The use of patterns during macro and micro-architecture design of a Web application is illustrated. Finally, some directions for future research, including extensions to POWE, are discussed.
