As well as in traditional software engineering, reuse is a key factor for the efficient and efficacious construction and evolution of complex Web applications. Efficaciously integrated in the development process and supported by an appropriate framework, reuse significantly increases development speed, application quality and, by enabling rapid prototyping, improves stakeholder communications. Although reuse aspects in traditional software engineering have been thoroughly investigated, their

Beyond that, current consolidation activities in the Web Engineering community underline the significance of a unifying solution. To this end, we present a comprehensive ontology-based Web Engineering reuse approach that establishes a common basis for cross-methodology reuse strategies and emphasizes stakeholder collaboration. To unfold the full potential of reuse, it incorporates both planned and spontaneous reuse strategies. We point out the approach's extensibility and applicability for cross-methodological Web Engineering and demonstrate how it considerably accelerates development speed and improves stakeholder communications.
