A Framework Based Approach for the Development of Web Based Applications Abstract: The sole goal of E-Governance is to allow interaction of  government with their citizens in a comfortable & transparent manner.  Uniqueness of J2EE makes it a perfect technology for development of any  online portal. These involve constancy, easy to replant, construct speedily  etc. In this paper we present a procedural approach to develop a web  application using the J2EE Struts Framework. Keywords : Web application; E-Governance; Struts; Frameworks; J2EE. Hybrid Model for Solving Multi-Objective Problems Using Evolutionary Algorithm and Tabu Search Abstract: This paper presents a new multi-objective hybrid model that  makes cooperation between the strength of research of neighborhood  methods presented by the tabu search (TS) and the important exploration  capacity of evolutionary algorithm. This model was implemented and  tested in benchmark functions (ZDT1, ZDT2, and ZDT3), using a network of  computers. Keywords : Metaheuristics; hybrid method; intensification; diversification;                   parallelism; cooperation. Authors Rachit Mohan Garg Yamini Sood Balaji Kottana Pallavi Totlani Comparative Study on DFD to UML Diagrams Transformations Abstract: Most of legacy systems use nowadays were modeled and  documented using structured approach. Expansion of these systems in  terms of functionality and maintainability requires shift towards object-  oriented documentation and design, which has been widely accepted by  the industry. In this paper, we present a survey of the existing Data Flow  Diagram (DFD) to Unified Modeling language (UML) transformation  techniques. We analyze transformation techniques using a set of  parameters, identified in the survey. Based on identified parameters, we  present an analysis matrix, which describes the strengths and weaknesses  of transformation techniques. It is observed that most of the  transformation approaches are rule based, which are incomplete and  defined at abstract level that does not cover in depth transformation and  automation issues. Transformation approaches are data centric, which  focuses on data-store for class diagram generation. Very few of the  transformation techniques have been applied on case study as a proof of  concept, which are not comprehensive and majority of them are partially  automated. Keywords : Unified Modeling Language (UML); Data Flow Diagram (DFD); Class Diagram; Model Transformation. Authors Rjab Hajlaoui Mariem Gzara Abdelaziz Dammak Authors Atif A. A.
