Web Engineering is defined like a new area to propose models, techniques, processes, architectures, etc. in order to deal correctly with the special characteristics of the web environment. In the last years, new methodological approaches appeared in this environment. However, Web Engineering is not often applied in industries and real projects. This paper presents a general vision of a web approach, named NDT (Navigational Development Techniques) and it is focused on the study of its practical applications.
