Abstract:

The goal of the University of Colorado Arcadia project was to explore the problems of wide-area software engineering. Historically, the project was the second phase in a long-term Arcadia consortium of universities and companies whose goal was to advance the state of the art in software engineering environments. The Univ of Colorado Arcadia project has been successful in achieving its objective producing innovative, useful and interesting research results in the areas of software process, software architecture, configuration management, deployment data management, distributed computing and web-data management. These research results were embodied in a number of prototype systems Qdistributed computing, Process Wall software process execution Balboa software process capture, Sybil databased integration, NUCM distributed configuration Management, SRM software release, DVS distributed development, Software Dock distributed wide-area deployment, Siena Internet-scale event notification, Aladdin software architecture analysis, Menage configurable software architecture, and WIT Federating web-data. The results from this project have been widely disseminated in the form of publications software distribution to over 600 sites, technical transfers to commercial practice, and through the conferring of degrees upon quality Ph.D. and M.S. students.
