In this paper we present an approach to the user-driven development of process-oriented web applications that combines
business process modeling
with user-side application domain evolution. In the center is the DyWA framework that accompanies the prototype-driven web-application development from the domain modeling through the development and deployment phase to the actual runtime and later product evolution: Using DyWA, application experts without programming knowledge are able to model (according to their professional knowledge and understanding) both domain-specific data models and the business process models that act on the data via automatically generated elementary data operations. The resulting business processes integrate data access and manipulation, and directly constitute
of the resulting web application. All this is illustrated for OCS-lite, a cut-down version of Springer’s online editorial system.
