The goals of the survey were to try to identify more clearly the major issues facing the development of Web-based systems, and to see which, if any, traditional software engineering practices and techniques were being successfully applied. Fifteen interviewees from seven different organisations took part in the survey. This paper describes the background and results of our survey, and the conclusions that can be drawn about the practice of Web Engineering. We also discuss the major characteristics that describe Web-based application development, and the issues that a successful Web engineering process will have to address. More details of this survey can be found in our technical report [13] ‘A Survey of Web Engineering in Practice’.</ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
