The World Wide Web is a rapidly growing business environment hosting a large number of business transactions. Methods for designingWeb Information Systems (WIS) have adopted process models, typically as extensions of the navigation models they are based on. We observe that the structure of business processes in WIS goes beyond the scope of the navigation structure and deserves to be a more prominent aspect of the design, abstracted from the navigation specification. This paper explains the design of WIS driven by the specification of business processes of WIS that is used for the automatic generation of models describing the application logic including the navigation structure. The specification of processes is explained on a conference review and submission system and the generation process is demonstrated on the Hera application model.
