Abstract:

This report describes the work carried out by the Rapid Object Application Development ROAD consortium under the auspices of the Technology Reinvestment Project TRP.This report addressed the following problems related to building large scale distributed software systems in the defense software industry 1 Increasing difficulty increasing functionality increases complexity 2 Increasing cost every system seems to be new with a high associated price tag 3 Increasing uncertainty nothing tried and tested that can be used. The TRP objectives were to accelerate the adoption of rapid application development via object technology and reuse, advance the state of the art, and show the application of these techniques by means of demonstration applications. The work of the ROAD consortium has been to develop and demonstrate the use of tools and processes that meet the above objectives.
