Rich Web-based Applications: An Umbrella Term with a Definition and Taxonomies for Development Techniques and Technologies

Nalaka R. Dissanayake and G. K. A. Dias
Abstract—There is a wide range of web-based applications, which use a rich communication model such as Rich Internet Applications, mobile apps, cloud-based systems, Internet of Things based systems, etc.; however, a proper term to address them all and a definition, which covers and explains the common characteristics of them are missing. A definition of a concept is important as the definition provides a precise common understanding of the focused artifacts, which helps in increasing the realization of these artifacts towards proper utilization of them. We propose the umbrella term Rich Web-based Application to address the aforementioned types of applications, and also propose a definition for it, aligning to the common architectural characteristics of these applications. In addition, we deliver a set of taxonomies to classify the techniques and technologies related to the development of Rich Web-based Applications, in the direction of improving the understanding of the proper utilization of them. In future, we expect to introduce an architectural style for these Rich Web-based Applications, based on the proposed definition.

Index Terms—Definition, delta communication, development techniques and technologies, rich internet application, taxonomy, web-based application.
