This chapter introduces the Web Engineering Resources Portal (WEP) as a basic reference model and guide for Web Engineers. WEP provides a general classification of Web Engineering resources under technologies, research results, and tools. It consists of a reference model and a resources portal. The objective of the WEP reference model is to provide a common basic terminology, a technical-oriented classification of Web applications (WebApps), a specification of WebApps Logical and Physical Architectures, a classification of skills needed in Web projects and a generic and adaptable Web lifecycle process model. The WEP reference model provides the framework upon which Web Engineering resources are classified and presented. The WEP portal provides several and cross-referenced taxonomies of technologies, research results, and tools whereas its objective is to facilitate Web Engineers to comprehend available resources, understand their role and appropriately use them during development and operation/maintenance of Web information systems.
