A Configuration Process for a Distributed Software Development Environment

Ben-Shaul, Israel Z.; Kaiser, Gail E.

The authors describe work-in-progress on a configuration facility for a multi-site software development environment. The environment supports collaboration among geographically-dispersed teams of software developers. Addition and deletion of local subenvironment sites to a global environment is performed interactively inside any one of the existing local subenvironments, with the same user interface normally employed for invoking software development tools. This registration process is defined and executed using the same notation and mechanisms, respectively, as for the software development process. Everything described by the authors has been implemented and is working, but since they are in the midst of experimentation, they do not expect that the “final“ system will be exactly as described.
