The use of Web applications in order to provide data with an acceptable level of quality is currently of paramount importance for any enterprise that wishes its business processes to succeed. The adequate management of the corresponding data resources through the introduction of all those aspects whose aim is to monitor the levels of quality for the task in hand is therefore essential. We claim that the introduction of such elements and mechanisms should take place during the Web application development process. To the best of our knowledge, there is still a lack of methodological and technological proposals with which to design data quality aware applications in the field of Web application development. Based principally on the benefits provided by the Model Driven Web Engineering (MDWE), this paper proposes a metamodel and a UML profile (DAQ-UWE) for the management of Data Quality elements in the design of Web applications. The main objective is to provide the designer with the necessary tools to design Web applications, thus preventing data quality problems and ensuring data quality through design.
