Which Web Framework?
With the plethora of platforms or frameworks available, the question of which one is most suitable is common in discussion forums.
Structured Web Technologies provides the answer to this with dWebSpec.
dWebSpec provides the means of representing application requirements in a form that is independent of these platforms.

dWebSpec, which stands for Dynamic Web Specification, provides the schema for the standardized requirement capture.

All items needed to start, documentation and blank templates, are supplied free of charges on this site.
This requirement capture is broken down into the various areas of concerns. In the table below, we provide for few subject areas, which could be used to illustrate the standard dWebSpec representations and their translations to the different platforms.
As mentioned earlier, the topics in the table above are few, dWebSpec provides hundreds of topics. These could be reviewed by clicking here or the descriptors link on the left panel, and navigating through the descriptor tree. Specific platform could be selected using the drop down platform menu at the top of the page.
To study application modeling using dWebSpec, you should consult the documentation and video tutorials shown at the bottom of this page and product page; sample specifications and blank templates are free for download.
