Abstract

Nowadays, there are many available Web applications on the Internet. Since anyone can access a Web application with a browser, its user interface(WUI) becomes very important. Developers normally base the WUI on a template, but since designing it from scratch has a high cost, a pre-defined template is often used. However, such pre-defined template may not always be what the developer wants. We thus propose an approach where the developer will extract templates from existing Web pages. We confirmed the usefulness of our method through an evaluation focusing on correctness and development time.
