Abstract
In our third year Web Application Development course, there is a traditional assignment, which requires the students design and develop a token web application in ASP.NET. We have been specifying such a token web application assignment in ordinary English. This way is not concise, intuitive, well organised and accurate. Further, it might be ambiguous, incomplete and repetitive. This study tries to normalise the specification process and the notations for future use. The research methods used in this study are case studies and experimental research. Three case studies were used and a workflow based framework for the token web application specification was proposed. The framework consists of three components: Description, Activities and Workflow Chart. The proposed framework was tested against one assignment. It was planned to be tested against other 7 assignments. The proposed framework seemed able to address some of the issues raised, so that the specification was improved. However, this needs to be confirmed by further testing.
