This chapter defines a publishing model for Web applications starting from the analysis of the most well-known modeling methodology, such as HDM, OOHDM, WebML, Conallen’s method and others. The analysis has been focused to verify the state of art about the modeling of Web application pages. In particular, the different types of elements that compose the Web page in the above models are taken into consideration. This chapter describes the evolution of the HDM methodology starting from the first approach based on the definition of a LP concept up to the more structured and complex Conceptual page, based on the influence of “operations” on the modeling of the dynamics of navigation between pages.
