Abstract:

This study investigates the needs of software developers in the area of software reuse. The study formulates recommendations on how a software repository can meet the needs of the software development community. The Naval Software Reuse System NSRS is the focus of this research and the findings are intended for their use. The study focuses on eight core questions that are the central issues for the NSRS. On the basis of these eight core questions, a survey was developed that elicited the opinions of Department of the Navy software developers. The analysis of the survey provides conclusions for seven of the eight core questions. These conclusions lead to recommendations that for the most part are completely within the control of Naval Computers and Telecommunications Station NCTS Washington. NCTS Washington is the agency presently building the NSRS.
