A unified view of web application design and development is crucial for dealing with complexity. However, the literature proposes many denominations, depending on the development methodology, frameworks or tools. This multitude of Create, Read, Update and Delete (CRUD) approaches does not allow a holistic view of the web application. Besides, in a web application, the search for good practice in design, features and essential functions is still a relevant issue. A subset of essential CRUD operations is to provide code automation for web application rapid prototyping. Re-CRUD articulates the records management features into CRUD operation. This study aims to provide insight into the effectiveness and efficiency of Re-CRUD in web application development and to compare it with other web application frameworks' CRUD output. The qualitative feature analysis is used based on the evaluation guideline proposed in DESMET and reviewed by experts for validation. A document management system is developed and used as a case study for Re-CRUD evaluation. The feature analysis comprises Re-CRUD and four other web application frameworks CRUD, namely, CakePHP, Laravel, Symfony and FuelPHP. According to the review, Re-CRUD satisfies its expectations by providing more useful features and delivering higher code automation in the web application development process. Compared to the other existing CRUD generator, Re-CRUD has integrated records management features that are useful in providing support in managing born-digital data and also contributes to effectiveness and efficiency in web application development.
