This paper presents the automatic generation of Web appli cations that make use of pivot tables. The pivot tables sum up various kinds of data in two dimensions as in Microsoft Excel. They reduce the amount of code to be written by developers greatly. The paper also describes the BioPro system that implements these tables as visual Web com ponents. This system assists in the development of Web applications based on the page-transition framework that models a Web application as a set of transitions of Web pages, and using visual Web components, makes it easier to write processes executed when a Web page transfers to another.
