From the Back Cover:

Web site development grows up!

Web Site Engineering is the first book to systematically address the management, technical and operational issues that arise when Web sites become sophisticated application deployment platforms. It builds on hard-won software engineering principles, defining a new model for Web site development that delivers reliability, scalability and value without compromising speed.

Discover practical ways you can:

  • Bring structure to Web, extranet, and intranet deployment
  • Identify the real needs your site must answer
  • Choose between client-side and server-side technologies
  • Streamline the repurposing of existing content
  • Systematically test site functionality, content, security, and usability
  • Decide when to outsource -- and when not to

You'll gain new insight into the urgent issues that will make or break today's large, sophisticated sites. Discover how to cope with multiple browser environments, decide which new applications to deploy, and ensure adequate response times. Learn how to streamline maintenance through staging sites, database maintenance systems and other techniques. Make strategic decisions about deploying scripting languages, XML, Java, ActiveX and other technologies.

If you're responsible for managing a site with real content and business-critical applications, Web Site Engineering is the book you've been desperately waiting for.
