OntoWeaver is an ontology-based approach, which provides high level support for web site design and development. It relies on the following major components to achieve its task: i) a site view ontology, which provides fine-grained modelling support for user interfaces and navigation structures of the target web site, ii) a presentation ontology, which provides high level support for the specification of layouts and presentation styles for user interface elements, iii) a customization framework, which exploits the declarative specification of the target web site and provides comprehensive customization support at design time as well as run time, and iv) an OntoWeaver tool suite, which facilitates site designers to achieve tasks of web site design, including defining ontologies, specifying the target web site, and defining customization requirements.
