In agile practices, near real-time collaboration on the Web facilitates stakeholder activities, their communication and joint impact analysis. In providing an abstraction layer on the software development process, modeling enables participatory design and improves requirements negotiation by close involvement of end users. However, model-driven engineering is mostly used in classical software development to achieve standardization and mature processes. Little research in Model-Driven Web Engineering focuses on leveraging near real-time collaboration and collaborative modeling in order to support agile Web engineering processes. This paper proposes a new approach for Web-based collaborative near real-time modeling and generation of Web applications by tying together frontend components and microservices as key elements. This leads to well-defined service interfaces that facilitate inter-service and backend-frontend communication. Our evaluation results indicate increased productivity by better support for collaborative activities in Model-Driven Web Engineering.
