Web application development can be very complicated without an appropriate framework, architecture and application model. A good implementation model can help application developers communicate with clients, consolidate the design before starting the development, speed up the development, and make the code highly reusable. This paper proposes a mockup-driven fast prototyping methodology (MODFM) for the development of web applications. Built on top of recent web technologies and well-tried concepts including rapid prototyping and automatic code generation, MODFM leads to the quick production of a mockup of the finished application. As a result, MODFM helps to gain customer feedback at early stages of development in order to minimize development efforts because of incorrect or incomplete specifications. Real-life experiences of the use of the methodology in industry are reported as examples.
