For users and developers to form agreements about software system development, we propose a software development method that combines agile software methodologies and knowledge sharing technologies based on business ontologies. These business ontologies enable users and developers to form agreements about system specification by using the ontologies to address three aspects of business application for local governments: legal aspects, business processes, and software design. Our method specifically examines construction of domain models based on business ontologies of the early stage of development to reduce the cost of describing specifications. To recover the completeness of specifications, we propose a Web process architecture, which enables us to transfer a domain model to a design system specification. We have implemented a full environment using JAVA language, which enables us to generate software systems from a set of work processes.
