Benchmarking of WEB-methods and WEB-tools

Appendix: Benchmarking of WEB-methods and WEB-tools

The purpose of this report is to identify and perform an assessment of applicable web-methods and web-based tools. 16 tools are described and evaluated.

One conclusion from the report is that tools with a clear goal and limited scope requires less user input and seems to function better. DANTES web platform with several specific and well-defined tools is probably more flexible than a platform with less tools where each tool trying to cover a larger problem area.
