    The area of Web-based simulation (the integration of the Web with the field of simulation) (WBS) has grown since the mid-1990s. The Web itself has evolved rapidly, and current Web-related research areas include Web 2.0, service-oriented architectures and the Semantic Web. This paper gives a review of the area of WBS, exploring the advantages and disadvantages of WBS over classical simulation systems, a classification of different sub- and related-areas of WBS, an exploration of technologies that enable WBS, and the evolution of the Web in terms of its relationship to WBS.
