Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"The authors have developed a conceptual framework that is based on drawing a clear line between the so-called Web application architectures and Web platform architectures. I find this quite adequate, since it helps make a distinction between concepts … . All in all, this is an interesting book, one that was clearly necessary to shed a little light on the plethora of acronyms, and the relationships among them, that a typical Web engineer must face." (Rafael Corchuelo, Computing Reviews, February, 2005)
