Web applications are quite common now, though the development and maintenance of them are still a big challenge. Such a situation is attributable to the flood of technologies and lack of standards. Meanwhile, model driven development (MDD) is expected to contribute the development of software by notating the application at the proper abstraction level. The paper introduces an MDD approach into Web applications. Models facilitate understanding of the application and simplify the development of Web applications. Three levels of abstraction of the model are proposed, and each level of the model can be executed to verify the application specification. This enables developers to make an agreement of the specification with the customer at each stage of development.
