WebApp Characteristics
Immediacy. Web-based applications have an immediacy
[NOR99] that is not found in any other type of software. That
is, the time to market for a complete Web-site can be a
matter of a few days or weeks.
Security. In order to protect sensitive content and provide
secure modes of data transmission, strong security
measures must be implemented throughout the
infrastructure that supports a WebApp and within the
application itself.
Aesthetics. An undeniable part of the appeal of a WebApp is
its look and feel. When an application has been designed to
market or sell products or ideas, aesthetics may have as
much to do with success as technical design.
