Our approach makes use of MDA [5, 6, 7] transformations to automatically create the analysable model. Existing approaches [2, 3, 4] either consider static Web sites or analyse applications that have already been implemented. In contrast we use a formalism [8], which is ideal [9] for the analysis of the models of object oriented systems, such as Web applications.
