The Web-based eBook Generator is a web application accessible to everyone without requiring the installation of a client application. It is a quick and easy tool to convert traditional books and other study materials to electronic versions in downloadable format. Individual users can perform different roles in the basic workflow of book creation. Every user can access the content available from the same server. User roles depend on the preferences they choose when registering with the website. This website gives a detailed view about how a book is created and published. Hence a physical workflow during publishing a book is implemented programmatically in the web application. The content of the book or the material is generated using an open source rich text editor. This can be generated in both html and PDF formats, which makes it easy to download or print. The Web-based eBook Generator application includes a local search mechanism that allows searching for books or other study material based on different categories such as title, subject, and author. This thesis provides background information on electronic books and presents details of Web-based eBook Generator's software model and its prototype implementation.
