Classical software development methodologies take architectural issues as granted or pre-determined. They thus neglect the impact decisions for architecture have within the development process. This omission is applicable as long as we are considering monolithic systems. It cannot however been kept whenever we move to distributed systems. Web information systems pay far more attention to users support and thus require sophisticated layout and playout systems. These systems go beyond what has been known for presentation systems.
We thus discover that architecture plays a major role during systems analysis, design and development. We thus target on building a framework that is based on early architectural decisions or on integration of new solutions into existing architectures. We aim at development of novel approaches to web information systems development that allow a co-evolution of architectures and software systems.
