Advances in technology and the use of Internet have favored the appearance of a great variety of web software applications. As a result, over the past decade the number of organizations which make use of Web applications have grown dramatically. These web applications are used by different companies with the aim of giving several services to their clients.

The Web age has modified our society, new business models have appeared whereas others have been modified. In addition, the relationships between the different actors have changed.

Different kinds of users use these web applications in order to make deals. In both settings, the quality is relevant. In the first case, it is fundamental the quality of web applications in order to give a good service and assure the loyalty of users. In the second case, the quality is also important in order to users can achieve their objectives in a proper way.

The growing demand of software with quality has made the quality a discriminator factor among software products, and therefore a key factor for software success.

With this site we want to promote some of the research results on the area of web quality that we are achieving. All of them are related to the software quality in general and on web applications quality in particular. Our idea is giving to the researchers and users of the area the opportunity of sharing the works.

At this moment, the available tools have been developed by the Alarcos research group from the University of Castilla-La Mancha (Spain).

If you want to publish your tool in our web site or if you want to made us some comments, please, contact us. For visiting our tools, please, consult the right menu.
