One of the keys to success in business system development is to sufficiently elicit user requirements from the customers and to fully and correctly define the requirements specification that meets these requirements. However, the following facts bring about dropping the quality of the target software products: the developers sometimes misunderstand the customer's requirements and their business context; the customers often have the implicit requirements; the developers sometimes define incorrect requirements specification. In this paper, to establish a Web business application development method based on the validated requirements analysis model, we propose an automatic generation method of Web UI prototype from requirements analysis model in UML. In our method, the developer models the required services on the business tasks: the interaction between a system and the users corresponds to a business workflow; the I/O data through the interaction also corresponds to the data used in the workflow. These behavior and data models generate the prototype of Web UI in HTML. We discuss effectiveness of the method by applying it to several Web business application developments..
