Web application is used in various business fields on the Internet and intranets. It is an efficient way to develop Web application on the base of a framework. In this paper, we made a proposal of a web application framework in a specific domain so that its reusability can be higher than the common frameworks . After the well designing of its architecture, a framework for reservation was developed based on a meeting room reservation sample system. Then, the framework was applied to two types of reservation systems, an online book store system and a soccer ticket reservation system, and its reusability was evaluated. With the result of 62% and 65% respectively, high reusability of the framework has been confirmed. In addition, in order to make the influences to each part by the range of domain clear, another framework for time-based reservation, was developed, and the trade-off relationship between the range of the domain and the reusability has been confirmed. Finally, a visual tool has been developed to generate the source code for the database access transaction.
