Web information systems engineering means a collection of sound principles, methods, techniques and tools for developing Web-based information systems, which differ from traditional information systems in their unique technological platform and design philosophy. Key features of Web information systems engineering beyond traditional and object-oriented information systems development include emphasis on user navigation, the multilevel interactivity of the environment, and the advanced hypertext functionality in target information systems. A starting point for designing and modeling Web information systems is that these are essentially hypertext information systems. This chapter will specify requirements for Web information systems engineering methodologies from the viewpoints of hypermedia communication environments, adaptive hypermedia systems, and mobile hypermedia.
